One of the summer attractions of days gone by were 'games' that took place at many a town or village. For a spell Largo/Lundin Mill had its own version of this. The above notice from 11 July 1907 Leven Advertiser advertises that particular year's event. The venue was Sandilands Park (close to the east end of Leven Road) - a site which was handy for the railway station and which at that time was still undeveloped. The 25 July 1890 East of Fife Record below reports on an earlier games, held at a similar location ("ground near Lundin Links station"). Some results are detailed for the wide range of contests that were on offer. As well as the more serious athletic contests, races for 'old men' and 'old women' were held. It doesn't sound quite right for these to be described as "particularly amusing"! I also wonder how old you had to be to qualify for these 'old' folks races.
The origins of the games are unclear but in 1888, the newspapers reported on the case of a man who was charged with "collecting funds for the Lundin Mill Games....all of which funds he had appropriated for his own uses." Apparently it had been "for some years practice to have annual games at Lundin Mill but this year there were no such games." The prisoner had spent the money drinking with a number of companions. His sentence was 10 days in prison. So the games perhaps went back to at least circa 1870s. Newspaper archives tell us that the games restarted in 1889 and definitely took place in 1890 and 1897. In 1897 the games took place on the "green in front of Lundin Mill villas", which was the undeveloped south side of Crescent Road - shown below and discussed here. The games must have lapsed again soon afterwards, as in 1904 the Leven Advertiser of 1 September told of how they had once again been "revived" and that "local lads and visitors met in keen rivalry". However, as the village grew, and permanent sporting facilities (such as tennis and bowls) were laid on, the demand for such 'games' diminished and they fizzled out in their traditional format.
