CLEAR Buckhaven ~ CLEAR Fife

Community-Led Environmental Action for Regeneration

VACANCY:  Community Food Consultancy

UPDATE  October 2018

The harvest season continues and it's a major challenge to get the crop in and utilised before it spoils.  Our fancy new equipment for making apple juice has malfunctioned so it's back to more manual methods.  We've been converting some of this local produce into juices and jams, the best you will taste around and on sale at 36 College St.   The Methil Community Garden continues to transform through hard work, with an amphitheatre rockery, hobbit house, trellis shrubbery, shed and soon polytunnel emerging. Incidentally, our growing efforts around town were recognised by Buckhaven being upgraded to Gold in the recent Beautiful Fife Awards

In response to continuing demand, The bike workshop at Sandwell St continues until the end of the October holidays then scales down for the winter.  By contrast, we've been surprised that only a few have been turning up at our Men's Shed woodwork shop at Sandwell - it's  great opportunity for
people with some time to spare to be sociable and productive at the same time.  Please recommend anyone you know to drop in and give it a try - we'll be running it two days a week from October . Donations of tools, wood,paint and similar always welcome. Buckhaven Heritage Circle meets fortnightly.  The Community Fridge (every Wed afternoon and Thurs morning) supplies around 20 folk each week with some basic groceries

The CLIMB Project, which provides funds for small projects in both Buckhaven and Methil in line with Community Action Plans and selected by participatory budgeting is getting under way and should be fully launched in late October.  Anyone interested in joining in any CLEAR session, indoors or outdoors, from Tuesday to Friday welcome – we offer a hot midday meal and good company.  No skills or experience needed.   Make sure you see a copy of the October CLEAR and Community News print newsletter.
