AGM and Community Actions

I hope this message finds you well. I’m writing to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who joined us for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on Monday evening. Your presence greatly enriched this pivotal gathering for our community.

Reflecting on the evening, it was so inspiring to see such a strong turnout.

The AGM kicked off promptly, with the first half dedicated to general business, and we were pleased to see so many of you.

This AGM was a significant step in transitioning our broad visions into specific, actionable projects. We mentioned the Local Place Plan, which, thanks to valuable ongoing community input, only needs minor tweaking before submission. The focus on concrete localized actions and initiatives was evident, underscoring our commitment to realizing the community’s aspirations.

The participation and engagement during the AGM were heartening. It was not just about having a say but about being an active part of our community’s exciting journey. Many of you shared your thoughts, and some even signed up to help bring these ideas to life.

We revisited a variety of proposed initiatives, each aiming to enhance different aspects of community life. From the Water Improvement Project, emphasizing our commitment to the environment, to plans for advocating to repurposing the former hotel site for community use or parking, your interest in these proposals was evident.

The integration with broader initiatives like the Levenmouth Cycling Strategy, the Skillshare Programme’s focus on community-led learning, and sustainable living projects like the Tree Warden Scheme highlight your collective vision for a vibrant and sustainable future.

Your interest in projects ranging from dementia awareness and expanding volunteer networks to cultural events and youth engagement projects is a testament to our community’s diverse aspirations and commitment to inclusivity, safety, and heritage preservation.

As we move forward, each of these proposals, irrespective of scale, will play a crucial role in shaping our community. Your involvement and enthusiasm at the AGM have set a solid foundation for these endeavours. We will be publishing our community actions in full very soon, and are super grateful for your help to sort, prioritise and deliver.

Once again, thank you for being a part of this meaningful event. If you were not able to make it there will be plenty of opportunity for involvement as we go along and our mailbox is always open 🙂

Your participation is not just valued; it is essential in guiding our collective future. We look forward to continuing this journey with you and seeing these exciting plans come to fruition.

Roadworks reminder

Also a reminder: we would like to inform you about upcoming ground investigation works at Harbour Wynd. Starting on Monday, 4th December 2023, and lasting approximately a week, these works are essential for the design and replacement of a nearby retaining wall.

The contractor, Ian Farmer Associates, will oversee the drilling works. While percussion boring will be employed, resulting in some noise, efforts will be made to minimize disturbances. These works will only occur during daylight hours to reduce noise impact.

Please note, for safety, Harbour Wynd will be closed during this period, and a diversion will be in place. We understand this might cause some inconvenience, and Fife Council appreciate your patience and cooperation. A letter drop will be conducted in the area to inform residents of these works. Please see below images.

If you have any questions or need further information, feel free to contact during this time, please direct your queries to Frances Ratcliffe, Lead Consultant, at frances.ratcliffe@fife.gov.uk or call 03451 555555 Ext 444395.

Last but not least: As the festive season approaches, The Aurrie extends a warm and joyous invitation for a special Christmas Day celebration.
