Welcome To The Kingseat Community Information Site

The village of Kingseat is in the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland and is situated on the B912 road being 1.5 miles north east of Dunfermline and lying between Dunfermline and Kelty. It owes it's origin to coal mining in the mid 1800's when a total of 4 pits were worked. Mining ceased in 1945 although Scottish Coal has recently been working an Opencast site on the outskirts of the village.

The village consists of approximately 430 houses. It has a Community Centre and a Church of Scotland.

On the outskirts of the village is Loch Fitty which used to be run as a trout fishery, although now closed down, it is still a popular place for anglers and dog walkers, it is also along the Pilgrims Way trail.

The village has an active Community Council, a Bloom in Kingseat gardening group and a Childrens Community Garden - further information about these groups and others is to found on this website.

.Justine Waterston, Community Engagement Co-Ordinator

I would like to introduce myself as the new Community Engagement Co-ordinator for Dunfermline and Southwest Fife for Includem's Wellbeing in Fife service.

The well-being in fife service aims to support children aged 5-26 with their overall well-being/mental health in the form of groups. As a service we can provide input to pre-existing groups that are running ie football clubs, youth groups.

Furthermore, we can also provide input to professionals as well as those running the groups in order to support them on having conversations around mental health with the young people.

Alternatively, we can deliver groups within the local area if interest was there to provide sessions based on needs.

In addition to supporting young people, we can offer sessions to parents providing them new skills and confidence on having conversations with their child around mental health and well- being.

Please see the attached information in regard to some of the inputs we can offer to your organisation. Please note these sessions are fully funded and comes with no additional cost to yourselves.

I look forward to discussing this further with you and how we take this forward to support the young people and their families.

There are ways in which we can all work together to ensure we offer what support we can.
Keep in contact with your neighbours – telephone, text, email.
Offer help where it is possible remembering the stay safe rules.
Many of you may have kept the WinterWatch numbers and you can still use these to communicate a difficulty and where possible the members of the Community Council will try to assist –
