Was reading on a sight about Glenrothes (Knowhere or something like that) Someone had written some really unpleasant things about the town art so let me tell you a story……
When I was first married my hubby was offered a job (an opinion he couldn’t refuse) to work in Glenrothes. As I had been brought up in Edinburgh, Glenrothes sounded like my worst nightmare – a whole town of housing schemes. However I was taken round and thought its Ok not wonderful but OK. In time we moved into the Stenton area, brand new house etc. and I thought that that was a bit more than OK.
Some while later our daughter was born and one day when I was pushing the pram round Pitteuchar I suddenly came across a couple of stone Hippos. I had been a bit fed up that day and suddenly I felt like laughing. Over the next few months I also discovered the mushrooms, space ships etc that were meant for kids to play on and climb over.
Glenrothes suddenly became the best place to live and I have never regretted the move. Well done David Harding and Stanley Bonnar, you brought humour, a smile and art into one more resident’s life. What better reason to support public art.
