Meal Makers

We are working with Meal Makers to establish a pilot of this project in Tayport – the first and only one in Fife!

Meal Makers has been operating very successfully in an increasing number of cities and towns across the country. It has produced strong evidence for reducing poor diet and isolation amongst older people whilst also strengthening inter-generational relationships.

If you would like to become a volunteer ‘cook’ (or know of an older person who may appreciate having a home cooked meal delivered to their home), get in touch with Meal Makers using the contact details below.

What do you see as the future of Tayport?

Working in partnership with the Tayport Community Trust, we are delighted that Tayport has been chosen as one of only 20 communities in Scotland to participate in the Possible Scotland Tour with Lateral North.

The drop-in sessions on Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st January at the Burgh Chambers, and the presentation resulting from the sessions, which will be held in the Gregory Hall on the evening of Tuesday 31st, should lay good foundations for further consultation with the community about the future use of the Burgh Chambers and Gregory Hall and the potential for these facilities to come into community led management.

Come along and get involved.

Don’t Judge a Book By It’s Cover – Tayport Scout Hall

An opportunity for the community to visit our new kitchen exists when attending the PLANT group workshop on 22 January 17.

The hall is the next largest in the community and with the new kitchen, an opportunity to view our facilities for events and birthday parties.

We have secure in and out door facilities and toilets straight of the hall which reduces supervision issues.

We would like to thank the Big Lottery, Awards For All, Fife Council and community organisations for their support.

Our next objectives are new toilets and refurbished exterior.
