ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Below is part of the reply from Jillian Donnachie of Smart Community Fife, after I had made contact and invited her to visit my site. I feel honoured that after all these years she considers my writing good enough to mention for Collessie and Ladybank readers to see.


Hi Rob, thanks for your note. If it's ok with you, I have added reference to your poetry on the history pages of Collessie and Ladybank respectively, see

GUEST BOOK MESSAGE
I was born and brought up in the village of Collessie and my parents lived in the house that is shown on your main picture beside the church they lived there for 43 years. I am curious to know why you wrote about the wee village that has really changed beyond recognition for the wee hamlet it was in the 1960/1970's. Regards Alison

ADDITION VIA E-MAIL
Thank you for replying to me and of course you may display my message I am very proud of being a Collessie "bairn" ( you had to fall in the burn to be christened that!!). I wonder who farmed Hahill when your father was born I know that it belonged to the Storrar family before the Barrs took over.

A nice start to the day this morning with a request to feature my poem titled Collessie on the website dedicated to the beautiful hamlet of Collessie in North East Fife. collessie.btck.co.uk/PoetryonCollessie

We absolutely love the village of Collessie and the people, and feel like we have come home, so reading your poem has just made living here even more special!
