Dear Friends and Neighbours,  We know that the announcement of another 3 weeks of lockdown will have caused some frustration here and elsewhere. Unfortunately, Coronavirus cases in Fife are still rising – 488 yesterday, so probably exceeding 500 over the weekend.

NHS Fife has now set up a Covid-19  information page at The NHS and the World Health Organisation are two trusted sources of advice and information. Both are used by the BBC.
