Throughout the changes at Fair Isle, you have been a constant for our school community. You organised a school cinema trip to see Prince of Egypt, shared in the official opening of the new school along with your praise band and at our project launch. The children sold their home grown produce in the church and the school choir sang with The Kinghorn Singers. Annually, P6 pupils visited the church to hear the history of St Bryce Kirk and it’s traditions and you supported our P7’s in ‘Moving On’ to High School.  You have given guidance to pupils and staff and supported me as a Depute and also as the Headteacher.  I always appreciated and benefitted greatly from your encouragement, guidance and advice. Even during the global pandemic, we kept in touch by phone and you stayed in contact, with pupils and families through digital technology. In true Fair Isle style, a pandemic was not going to stop our summer assembly! Everyone at Fair Isle Primary wishes you a long and happy retirement.

Ken thanks for always being there as I have fond memories of my time at church and also for you and Agnes-Anne always listening. May the Lord bless you both in the next stage of your adventure in life

.in 1983in the Kirkcaldy area there was a significantss number of school leavers who needed a lot of guidance and support to prepare them for employment.
The more you learnt about this, the more you were convinced that the church should be involved in working with these young people..
After much preparation, St Brycedale Youth Training Scheme opened the doors to a group of ten trainees.  They were all very apprehensive at being with “church people”  However, the majority eventually settled into this new situation as did those who came in later years.
The Scheme ran for 20 years and during that time 500+ trainees were given the opportunity to gain life skills, qualifications and employment.
For the first five years we operated from the spare bedroom in the manse we had groups in the dining room and lounge for two mornings most weeks
Agnes Ann made everyone feel welcome, but she must have been relieved when the Training Scheme moved into the new church centre.

It has been a great pleasure to know you as our Minister and friend over the years, on and off as it happened for us as life’s changes moved us out of Kirkcaldy in 1980, and back again 9 years later. You’ve helped us with life’s full cycle: baptism, marriage, and sadly funeral services and have always been such a comfort and inspiration. Coming back to Kirkcaldy we have both enjoyed involvement with the Church, particularly for June helping in the office, involvement in music for me, and taking part and helping in the Alpha courses for both of us.
We are sorry to see you go as our Minister, but hope you have a hugely enjoyable and rewarding retirement and hope we can offer some friendship and companionship in retirement activities to come!

All the best
June and Malcolm

Someone sent us your farewell letter and it jogged so many fond memories of our time there. I have so much I could say to you on a personal and faith level but not enough room here! Despite being in NZ for 20 years now, you still stray into my thoughts occasionally and I wish to send thanks and best wishes for your retirement. We have just had our first g’child born a few days ago and Lesley is away supporting our daughter currently, while I stay looking after my almost 98yr old father, but she would also wish to be remembered to you, as well as wishing you and your family all the best for the future. If you ever find yourself out here when Covid allows, please look us up.
