CLEAR we are here?

Community-Led Environmental Action for Regeneration

UPDATE  September 2019

Update @ September 2019

Breakthrough in the Rail Campaign:  CLEAR has been celebrating the major boost to Levenmouth now coming down the tracks within 5 years with the announcement of the reopening of the rail-link and the Levenmouth Blueprint (seeking wider impact).  The Rail Campaign was a CLEAR initiative launched nearly 6 years ago which we encouraged other local activists to join.  The R in CLEAR stands for regeneration and, whatever good work we achieve at the grassroots, nothing will support this area's regeneration than the return of the trains.  CLEAR office bearers are still active in the Campaign, the Hub is the Campaign's registered office, and venue for the first few meetings.  It has been a long and challenging struggle but justice and reason have prevailed.   There is more to do for the Campaign and CLEAR will continue representing the community in the rollout of rail and associated works and the related River Leven Project.

New Arrangements:  With the ending of the Aspiring Communities Project, CLEAR has juggled reduced resources and will be open only two days per week from 1st September until 31st March (after that, we are in the dark) but with a regular weekend session added.  Volunteer sessions will run on Wednesdays and Thursdays (morning & afternoon), the same as the Community Fridge.  We plan a busy autumn programme of work and activities so hope more people will come along on those days or the designated weekend day to join in and lend a hand.  Buckhaven and Methil need much, much more green enhancement and we're now well into the harvest season. Donations of bikes, tools, plants and similar always welcome.

Setbacks:  The theft of our water bowser/trailer last week used to water plants out and about is a real blow .  Ongoing vandalism, including damage to planted trees and removalof planted shrubs mean we spend more time and money replacing items. 

Upcoming Events:  Despite the cutbacks, there is still plenty going on (as the Listings below show).  The CLEAR AGM is on 17th at Bield Braehead
