    See my answer to question one - legal and financial guidance, including how to minimise personal liabilities for club committee members - who are all unpaid volunteers.

    Guidance on licensing (what we need and how to apply for it). How to start up a support or community group (what help is available). Guidance on keeping accounts.

    I'd put links to already good guidance about events in this portal (eg https://www.visitscotland.org/events/advice-materials/management-guide) but then deal with anything specific to Fife here as well (eg how to secure licences for events from Fife Council, the names and contact details of local papers/radio stations for publicity, names & contact details of local councillors/MPs/MSPS, maybe a local events calendar to avoid possible clashes with other events happening?).

    Allocation of local Area Committee and also Fife Council budgets by area It is extremely difficult to obtain this information at present which is not healthy for local democracy. Ideally, some analysis might accompany this along the lines currently employed by the KnowFife series

    Local land ownership/tenure. Nationwide, the system is antiquated so it will be a long time coming. But there should be a way for local organisations to access the Council's own holdings (and any other owners currently in the system). In the interests of transparency and in the context of community assets, this seems essential
