Eco move for Tullis

Tullis Russell Mills Band to make an eco friendly move after 91 years.

Tullis

 

After 91 years of being based within the Tullis Russell Mills paper mill site, Tullis Russell Mills Band have now moved out to the Woodside Community Hall in nearby Woodside, Glenrothes.

Eco visitors

The move was brought about by their current band hall being demolished to make way for a new Eco Visitor Centre as part of a major new project to build an eco friendly power station within the mill using recycled products.

Daunting move

Band Chairman Alan Douglas told 4BR: "The thought of moving was a daunting one, but after being in negotiations with Fife Council for almost 2 years we were able secure a fantastic facility to rehearse in."

The new venue has a stage, storage facilities, kitchen, disabled access and can seat 200 people, so it is also hoped the band can use the new facilities for concerts and brass workshop days as well as our rehearsal nights.

Acoustics

The main though was the acoustics, but after some minor cosmetic work the band’s new resident conductor Martin Ramsay was happy. The hall will be open to other community groups and bands who may be taking part in contests in the Glenrothes/Kirkcaldy area will be made welcome to use the hall on contest days.

Return

All three bands within the Tullis Russell organisation—from youth to seniors, have all now rehearsed in the new hall and are enjoying their new home.

Alan added: "Woodside was the first village in the Glenrothes area and was set up to house workers at the Tullis Russell mill, so it’s fitting that the band’s new home is in this area."
