CLEAR Buckhaven ~ CLEAR Fife
Community-Led Environmental Action for Regeneration
UPDATE July 2018
Well the good news is that the fruit harvest is looking promising and the hanging floral baskets are out in College St with other flowers planted around the town. The bad news is that if this drought and heat continues, it may adversely affect this - it's already causing serious stress for shrubs, flowers and trees. CLEAR faces water limitations with no water supply in either Methil or Buckhaven Growing Space. We've purchased a second hand bowser to water out and about when it's refitted.
Cycling and recycling are to the fore this summer. We held a successful Upcycling Fair in College St Gardens and fortnightly sessions run on Saturday morning at Sandwell Street. The weekly bike repair sessions run every Thursday evening at the same venue and men's shed/pallet workshop sessions during the same day. There a Family Bike Run on 14th July The GO E-bike project was launched in June and we're seeking to increase use by staff and volunteers.
We're grateful to Silverburn Squad for installing two pair of archways with more to follow. These oak slabs recall the jawbanes which were a feature of this former fishing town and, as well as being a feature in their own right, demarcate and encourage use of off-road paths around town. The Buckhaven Heritage Circle meets fortnightly at 36 College St and welcomes anyone interested in exploring the town's history. The Community Fridge project is running with food (up to 5 items) available every Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning at 36 College St for those that need this, thanks to Fareshare
Donations of bikes, plants, tools, wood and paint always welcome. Anyone interested in joining in any session from Tuesday to Friday welcome – we offer a hot midday meal and good company. No skills or experience needed. Drop into 36 College St or phone 01592-813078 or 715021 email email@example.com or check our facebook or web pages.
