RESIDENTS of Cupar are being asked to come up with ideas to make the town greener.

A local environmental charity is asking local people what they would like to help them to save carbon.

Sustainable Cupar has the opportunity to bid for funds to help local residents to save carbon and reduce their bills.

The charity, which was founded in 2009, is currently running a number of projects, including looking at upgrading footpaths in and around the town, and providing help and support for local residents to grow their own fruit.

Susan Horsman, a trustee of Sustainable Cupar, said: “We have a fantastic opportunity to bid for some money to take on a larger project.

“We have come up with a number of ideas for projects, including the possibility of setting up an environmental advice centre where people can drop in to get information on a range of topics, including ways to save energy and reduce waste.

“We could also offer home visits to help show people how to work their heating systems efficiently and reduce their energy bills.

“However, we are keen to hear from local residents, so that we can tailor any proposals to the needs of the community.

“Please visit www.sustainablecupar.org.uk and complete a short survey to let us know what you would like to see to make Cupar greener.”
