Hi, in recent years I have–usually without trying–found myself taking an interest in local and national issues. Some of these issues such as the removal of tolls on the Forth Road Bridge and the opposition to the commercial development of Pittencrieff Park (the Glen) have developed into campaigns and the latter ended up with me constructing a website.

The site Save Our Glen has attracted a lot of attention and is still relevant as the Carnegie Trust appear to be continuing their disposal of assets, such as the Pitreavie Playing Fields, that were meant to be for the benefit of the people of Dunfermline.

Anyway happy with the response to the Glen issue, I decided to expand the site and feature more topics that interested or irritated me, and which I thought deserved exposure. I hope to have more articles on the site in the near future so keep an eye on it.

There are now four topics published on this website: Save Our Glen, Elgin Cheated at Marbles, Lawyers and Me , and Jimmy Savile , with a fifth on Freemasonry published in part. Others works in progress are varied and include my experiences with common good assets, bird watching, the ethics of multinational companies, bread making, and my experiences of the Scottish justice system.

You can access a topic by clicking the appropriate links at the top right hand side of the page. You can then navigate each section by clicking on the appropriate Part/Chapter in the right hand side bar. (These become available as the chapters are published).

If you would like to contact me then you can click on the “contact” link at the bottom of the page and fill in the contact form.

Thanks for visiting the website, Tom Minogue.
