Welcome to the Boarhills and Dunino Community Council Website
As referenced in our latest Elected Members Update, NHS Fife is running COVID-19 vaccine drop-in clinics this week Tuesday-Thursday in four of our main community venues.
These clinics provide a useful opportunity to promote vaccination amongst some of our communities who do not speak English as a first language.
As such, please find attached and below both English and Polish language social media assets, which we would appreciate your support in sharing on your own Facebook and Instagram channels:
We're providing a series of drop-in clinics at our large-scale vaccination venues this week.
If you're over 40 years old and haven't had your first dose or you have waited 8 weeks or more for your second dose of AstraZeneca (in any age category) you can drop in for vaccination at centres in Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Dunfermline, or Methil on these dates without an appointment.
The clinics are open from 12noon- 8PM. Vaccinations will be limited by supply, and we will use our social media channels to keep people updated with the latest information.
For more on local vaccination, including details of how to get to the listed venues, please visit: https://fife.link/vaccinationcentres

19/02/21 Dog Thefts
Due to a spate of dog thefts up and down the country and some in this area, dog owners are advised to be extremely vigilant with their dogs when walking them or leaving them unattended anywhere, even within your own premises. Gangs of dog thieves are "flagging up" properties where dogs live by attaching plastic tie straps to gates and fences, or daubing with paint etc, leaving a marker for others to attemp to steal the dogs later when an opportunity presents. Fife Police have confirmed the practice is widespread in this area. Please be careful and report any unusual activity to the police.

ONLINE BOOK CLUB
Fife Council Community Learning and Development are piloting an online book club as part of our refreshed adult learning menu. The attachment gives information about the initial online ZOOM meeting on Thursday 18th June at 1.00pm where people can ask questions to the tutor to find out more and sign up. Once people have contacted Jane Norton (Jane.Norton@fife.gov.uk) to indicate their interest, they will be provided with a code to enter the session. Please click here for further information. The books will be purchased from the Fife Council Budget and issued to people. The books won't be decided until the course has started and the group have discussed what they would like. One initial suggestion is a very popular book at the moment called "normal lives" that was serialised on telly this year, however will ultimately be up to the group and the tutor to decide what they wish to read. The course will start with a couple of short stories that the tutor posts on an online platform that people access from there.
