Wellwood Fencing Facility & Community Centre


Conversion of a former primary school into multi-functional building providing a facility that can be used by West Fife Fencing Club (WFFC) & Scottish Fencing (SF)& for other purposes by a wide variety of groups & individuals from the local community. Beneficiaries: WFFC & SF members, all residents of wider Dunfermline & West Fife community.

Our goals:

  • To provide a permanent home for West Fife Fencing Club (SCIO charity no. SC045885) whose aim is to make the Olympic sport of fencing available & affordable for all people in the Dunfermline & West Fife area.
  • To provide the local community of Wellwood & North Dunfermline with a multi-use community centre that can meet the needs of a wide variety of groups & individuals.
  • To provide a facility that can be used by the wider fencing community in Scotland for training fencers, coaches & officials thereby increasing the availability of fencing throughout Scotland.

How we will achieve our goals

The primary school property has already been purchased by WFFC. The Community Award will fund the conversion of the property into a multi-purpose property by paying for removal of internal walls, laying of multi-use flooring, equipping meeting rooms, kitchen, changing rooms & storage areas.

Where the money will go

WFFC is a successful fencing club but has achieved its success from a school dining hall & assembly hall. With a permanent home WFFC could make fencing more widely available to many more people. The local community would benefit from a facility well equipped for a variety of activities: meetings, sports/fitness, hobbies, children’s parties etc
