The Townswomen’s Guild colours are shown in this hand-painted sign: originally taken from the freedom badge of Italy, the colours symbolise red for courage to tackle problems, white for faith in their endeavours and green for hope that the endeavours would be successful.

Although there is no longer a branch in Dunfermline, the Townswomen's Guild is a national movement with thousands of members across the UK. Since its inception in 1929, members have collectively voiced their concerns to change and improve the livelihoods of women, something that is still pursued as passionately as ever. Townswomen across the country play an active role in their communities and work tirelessly to raise funds for a variety of causes.
