Community leaders in Leslie are calling on residents to help make the town a safer place to live by making it Fife’s latest Neighbourhood Watch area.
Leslie Community Council are inviting the public to have an input into the project when they discuss the matter at a public meeting next week.
Now we are looking for members of the community to help to keep Leslie safe.Jan Wincott
Glenrothes Community Sergeant Kenny Greig will also be on hand to offer advice on the night.
Jan Wincott, chairman, told the Gazette: “The presentation from Sergeant Greig is hopefully the first step in setting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in Leslie.
“We have led the way in working with the Police on initiatives like Community Speedwatch and the purchase of CCTV cameras.
“Now we are looking for members of the community to help to keep Leslie safe.
“This does not involve a large time commitment, but people can help in any way that they can.”
A presentation by Simon Hill detailing the proposed Pilgrim’s Way project, which will run through Leslie, will also take place.
The meeting will be held at Leslie Primary School, Rothes Park from 7.30 p.m. and is open to all residents and all those interested.
