A member of the Lundin Links Amateur Dramatics Society, Mrs Nisbet not only gave many acting performances within the village but also travelled to a wide range of Fife towns and villages such as Tayport, St Andrews, Markinch, Collessie, Kirkcaldy and Cupar with her fellow actors. For example the Courier of 26 September 1931 described how "a sketch party from Lundin Links - Mrs Nisbet, Miss Ness, Miss J. M. Paxton and Miss I. Paxton - gave an excellent performance of 'A Good Stroke of Business'" in the Victory Hall, Collessie.
Often performances were given at events organised to raise funds for various causes, including repairs to the village Curling Pond, the Red Cross, the Largo Parish Community Council and the Lifeboat Fund. Often Mrs Nisbet was responsible for the programme of entertainment at such fund-raising events and at other community occasions. She gave solo performances as well as performing as part of a group and not only acted but sang and gave readings.
On 11 August 1936, the Courier reported on a tennis tournament held at Beffens where Mrs Nisbet "put her tennis court at the disposal of the players and threw open her garden, where spectators and players were able to enjoy a round of Delta golf between matches. " This event raised funds for equipment for local playing fields and recreation grounds.
Clearly a lady with great talent and energy, Mrs Nisbet died in 1959 at the age of 78. Reading between the lines, it appears that she left grounds to be used as public gardens under the 'B. F. Nisbet Trust'. These gardens have been enjoyed for many years and the commemorative stone ensures that she will not be forgotten. Do you remember Mrs Nisbet? Do you have particular memories of the gardens? If so, please comment.
