Community-Led Environmental Action for Regeneration

Vacancy - Closing Date 18th May - Operations Co-ordinator (or Consultant) June 2018-March 2019.  Individual with experience and analytical capacity to review and improve CLEAR operational, administrative and related systems to enhance efficiency, effectiveness and wider engagement (details here)

UPDATE  May 2018

Finally a good if late show of the spring bulbs CLEAR has planted across town.   The major new displays of purple crocuses at Swan Brae and Kirkland Drive, though shortlived, mark the Rotary’s World Polio Eradication Campaign.  Most of the hundreds of thousands of daffodils planted have yet to show.    Both inside and outside the fence, the new Methil Growing Space off Kirkland Drive is taking some shape with orchard areas nearly complete and community beds being laid out.   In the coming months, we hope to welcome local schools, nurseries, and other groups to take part as well as welcome individual local residents and allotment holders.   In Buckhaven, one final round of fruit and native tree planting for the season will clear the way for a major planting of shrubs at Viewforth and gapfilling in College St, Tollpark and others to be carried out in April.  CLEAR ran stalls at Easter events at Fife College and MCCI, Methilhill
 
Indoors, the pallet workshop and men’s shed runs every Thursday, now at the Sandwell St premises. The bike repair workshop should resume to get people active for the coming summer season.  Some progress is being made in setting up a basic food processing unit there.  Finally, with some additional staff recently joined, CLEAR also now occupy `overspill’ premises at the Baptist Church in College Street.
 
In April, there are several Easter events in the first week, weather permitting. On the 15th, we join with Levenmouth Academy for the first in a  series of Sunday Community Gardening sessions as part of a heroic effort to utilise their vast grounds for green and productive use - we need some local volunteers to take part.  Community litterpicks in Methil and Buckhaven will be organised. The first Open Day of the year runs at Buckhaven Growing Space on Sunday 29th.    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 clearfife@aol.com or check our facebook or web pages.
