Hiya! My name is Ian Fraser and I have lived
in Lochgelly for over 67 years.
I was brought up in the Stewart Crescent prefabs before moving to the Main Street flats west
of St Serfs (Macainsh) Church and ended up in Park Street after 30 years in Station Road.
My parents, Tom and Grace,
were the only husband
and wife on Lochgelly Town Council and Fraser Drive was named after them.
I started work as a reporter for the
Lochgelly Times and then spent 30 years with Scotsman Publications before joining the Dunfermline Press as sports editor
I was also a director of Cowdenbeath
FC for 18 years up until their championship success in 2006, their first title win since 1939.
My wife Anne (Howieson) and I bought
Lochgelly Post Office in 1989 and she ran it successfully until we both retired in 2001.
This site was inspired by an earlier one created by my son Neil and it has been a huge success
with an amazing response from all over the world.
have also been listed in a search on "Lochgelly" on Google for more
than ten years without any professional or corporate assistance.
Many thanks for visiting our site and please come back soon.
