Methil Firefighters help Levemouth to clean up

Publish Date:

On Sunday 29 May from 10am – 12pm, teams will be out and about targeting the area Burnmill Industrial Estate, Leven at The Kingdom of Fife Railway Preservation Site for tidying.

Levenmouth are benefiting from a clean up initiative thanks to a drive by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the Fife Community Safety Partnership.

Firefighters at Methil fire station are joining up with Fife Community Safety Partners to support the Community Clean Up initiative which is an independent charity supported by Scottish Government.

On Sunday 29 May from 10am – 12pm, teams will be out and about targeting the area Burnmill Industrial Estate, Leven at The Kingdom of Fife Railway Preservation Site for tidying.

The move is part of a bid to provide a cleaner tidier Levenmouth to discourage people to light fires and encourage people to take pride in their surroundings.

East Fife Youth Academy will be attending along with local Councillors.

Clean Up Scotland is the mass-engagement campaign to involve one million people in action against litter and mess. It is a national coalition of organisations and people from all places and all backgrounds who want Scotland to shine.

The short-term aim is to remove litter and mess so that Scotland shines. The longer-term aim is to gradually change behaviour so that littering becomes as unacceptable in future as drink-driving is now.

Station Manager at Methil fire station Stephen Thomson said: “Local people want to see the cleanliness of Levenmouth improve and this is a very positive step forward.  It's up to everyone to take a pride in their community.

“Come along on Sunday 29 May and help us clean up Levenmouth.”

All are welcome to the open day of the Kingdom of Fife Railway Preservation Society which is taking place on the site upon completion of the clean up.
