Community-Led Environmental Action for Regeneration

October 17 Update: Autumn means the apple and pear harvest is in full swing and spring bulb planting season has started.  A minimum of 60,000 bulbs will be planted so we rely on not only our own volunteers but other groups and that's to be achieved ahead of the busiest ever tree planting season planned which follows immediately (Nov-March).  We're getting much appreciated help from the Silverburn Squad on archway installation and painting of railings as well as working with others including college and 16Plus groups.   The challenging new project with Levenmouth Academy is getting underway - more planting.  We're still waiting to start the Methil Growing Space but hope recent delays will be overcome soon.  Some other seasonal activities have resumed - the monthly community cinema, flower arranging class, crafternoons while the pallet workshop continues.  The only activity that's reduced is bike repair and outings but we'll still take bikes in, and can arrange repair and there's a last cycle run for the season.  A series of bike maintenance classes will also commence along with a new series of Grow With It classes.   There's all day Heritage outing - places available and the final Open Day of the year is a Hallowen Special on 31st Oct.

At more strategic level, the first meeting of the Buckhaven Implementation group (BIG) saw a big turnout from different organisations interested in pushing forward different aspects of the Buckhaven Links! Community Plan.  The Bring It On event generated less interest, unfortunately.  The TAPIL Paths Group is also meeting regularly and we're hopeful of real  improvements on the ground.  Elsewhere the rail campaign achieved an important breakthrough with Govt agreeing to fund a critical next stage.

Lots of fabulous jams, chutneys, fruit, some veg and plants on sale at 36 College St.  New volunteers always welcome, and also any unused bikes, plants or tools
