Leven community council has appealed for vigilance after vandals struck on Leven high street.

New street furniture and trees were installed as part of upgrading works at Durie Street in May, but it was discovered recently that the new trees had been snapped, just days after being installed.

The organisation and a lot of the work is done by Leven Environment Group

Alistair Suttie, chairman of the council, told the Mail that they have been able to pin down when the incident happened, and are hoping that CCTV cameras in the area will have captured the vandals in the act.

Meanwhile, the council has shown its appreciation to Leven Environment Group for the continued hard work around the town by donating £500.

Alistair said: “The display of hanging baskets and planters brightens up the High Street and surrounding area every year.

“It takes a lot of volunteer effort to get this display in place and keep the plants watered and weeded. While Fife Council helps, the organisation and a lot of the work is done by Leven Environment Group.”

In an effort to keep the town looking good ahead of upcoming Fife in Bloom judging, the council has offered to help LEG around the town, and has appealed to people in Leven for help too, especially when it comes to the disposal of cigarette buts.

The council has asked that all pubs and shops ensure they have adequate ashtray provision and that they are emptied on a regular basis.
