Methilhill residents say they are fed up of litter blighting the local park and ruining their children’s playtime experiences.

According to one mum, the situation at Chemiss Road park has now reached a “crisis point” and she’s calling for action to be taken to rid the area of the nasty leftovers.

Local mum Shirley Faichney, who is also chair of the Methilhill Community Children’s Initiative, said she and many other parents are extremely concerned about the state of the play park.

“It’s not just unsightly, but unhygienic and the area already has a known problem with vermin.”

Shirely said the problem is particularly bad at the weekend - a time when most families are visiting the park - when litter is apparently not picked up as regularly as it is during the week.

She believes many of the culprits may be children from nearby Buckhaven High School, who visit the park on their lunch hour and leave litter behnd.

“It is important for our local children to have somewhere safe and accessible to play, but to have their play space unusable all weekend due to littering is so unfair,” added Shirley.

“The community are all fed up with the problem and would like a solution.”

And she has challenged the Council by claiming the issue has not been resolved because of the area.
