The long-running saga over the future of a listed building in Leslie has taken another bizarre twist with a second mysterious notice appearing pinned to the property over the weekend.

Last month the C-listed property at 222 High Street was the talk of the town after a hand-written anonymous note, written as if the house itself was pleading for someone to come and renovate it, appeared causing much local curiosity.

And now a poem has been attached and has once again got tongues in the town wagging, though it’s not known if the two notices have been posted by the same person.

Entitled ‘222 High Strret’ it reads: “The Coonsil hadbig plansfor me, they promised ahd be gettin’ sorted, ah wiz telt ahm gettin’ selt, but it seems ma dreams have been aborted!!!’.

However the man or woman behind the practical joke is revealing very little of their identity having simply signed the prose ‘Madza Brush’.

This most recent posting is the latest in a long and chequered history for the house that was at the centre of a compulsory purchase order started 2006 and only decided in December last year when Fife Council were finally awarded the legal right to the property.

Since then little has improved for the building, though the removal of some of the boards protecting windows in the last week, has sparked a renewed anticipation that the house will now finally be renovated.
