Community-led Environmental Action for Regeneration: Buckhaven & Methil

Opening Times - Volunteer Activities resumed

Think Global ACT LOCAL - join in our efforts to combat climate change through practical grassroots actions.  More Levenmouth residents needed to make a vital difference

CLEAR activities have continued throughout the lockdown but at a reduced level and are now almost fully back in action. We still cannot accommodate organised groups but individual volunteers are very welcome to come along for a session at the two Community Gardens on Wednesdays and/or Thursdays.  the bike workshop is up and running for repairs and sales.

Opening Times from 1st October 2020:

  • Community Gardens (Methil & Buckhaven) :  every Wed & Thurs 10-4

  • 47 Sandwell St Bike Repair & Sales:   every Thurs 12.30-4.30, 6-8 Every second Sat 11-3 (first and third Sats of each month)

  • 36 College St (sales of fruit, veg, info):  every Wed 10-4

  • Weekend events :  as advertised


When normality resumes after the Covid-19 emergency, CLEAR will continue activities three days per week (Tuesdays to Thursdays) with occasional weekend events.

Weekly Update @ 25 October 2020:  CLEAR tends to be busy year-round.  There’s plenty of work going on in the community gardens as final harvesting, new planting and other seasonal tasks still require attention. At the same time, seasonal work planting spring bulbs and trees out and about is getting underway and will become an important focus through until March.  We have a treeplanting session this Saturday 31st October 11-1 at Buckhaven braes, meet 28 Viewforth to join in.  12,000 crocus bulbs have been planted these past two weeks at the Percival Rd junction and similar amounts are planned for Kirkland Drive.  

Given the damp weather and short days, why should anyone volunteer.  For the simple reason that outdoor work is proven to be good for everyone’s health and wellbeing, and it also offers a sociable experience and in which people can take pride that they’re enhancing their local area. At the larger scale, doing this work directly helps climate change as well as contributing to regeneration of our neglected locality.  Volunteer days are Wednesdays and Thursday with occasional weekends.  The bike workshop is open this Thursday 12-4, 6-8 and Saturday 11-3 for sales and repairs.  For more information, tel 07903366529, email clearfife@gmail.com or check our facebook or web page.



After a significant growth since 2018 (including work in Methil and the Sandwell Workshop), CLEAR is rationalising activities from 2020 onwards.  Funding has been secured from the National Lottery, Robertson Trust, People's Postcode Lottery and Scottish Govt Investing In Communities Fund to maintain a small cadre of staff and regular weekly volunteer programme.

For more information, drop into 36 College St Buckhaven (Tues-Thurs), tel: 01592-715021, email clearfife@gmail.com or check our facebook page.
