Leuchars Rail Land Regeneration Project - Action Day


19/Jun/2011

The Leuchars Community Council has decided, with agreement from Fife Council, to regenerate the old railway siding that lies just beyond Aitken Place on Station Road.  The area is currently overgrown, untidy and a general eyesore to anyone travelling along that busy stretch of road. As part of the Community Councils ongoing project of trying to keep 'Leuchars Looking Lovely', you may have noticed the new addition of two stone wall 'gateways' as you enter the village from Guardbridge.  This was possible due to the generosity of the Site Manger of the quarry at Bamullo and the services of a local builder.  The hanging baskets will shortly be hung on the lamp-posts on Station road and outside local businesses and some of the children from the Primary School have already been down to help re-plant the 'Bee-Hive' and Planters near the roundabout.
 
In order to kick-start the land regeneration project, the Community Council has organised an 'Action/Launch Day'.  This will be held on the 19th of June at 13:00, meeting at the old crossing point near the 'grey box'.  The aim is to litter pick, clear any light scrub, remove the old fence and plant some of the 420 trees we received from the Forestry Commission.  So far our volunteers include the Community Council, RAF Leuchars Station Conservation Team, Fife Ranger, 71 Sqn RE (TA) and the Leuchars Youth Project.  We are looking for more volunteers of all ages who are willing to spare a couple of hours.  All we ask is that you bring a pair of gloves, some sturdy footwear and a sense of wanting to be involved in your community.  Please note that ALL children MUST be accompanied by an adult.  The goal of the project is to create an area which will be pleasant on the eye, functional for all and kind to nature.
 
Hope to see lots of you on the day
 
Kind regards
