Despite the damp and overcast day, the autumn clean-up at Rabbit Braes in Kirkcaldy on Saturday was a success, with many local people turning out to help clear up the area.

The litter pick-up was supported by the 24th Fife Beaver group, based in the Templehall area, and other local volunteers who came along to help tidy up the town’s popular green space.

Lorraine Wilkinson, chairman of the Rabbit Braes Development Group said: “Although it was quite wet, everyone went out and helped to lift the litter.

“Much of this has been left by a few adults who continuously drink in the area and leave their litter behind.”

The group is already busy planning its next upcoming events, which are set to take place next month.

“Now, we are in the process of organising a number of other activities, including a couple of sunset walks taking place during the October school holidays and the annual Halloween Spooky Walk and disco on Saturday, November 1 which is always hugely popular,” Lorraine added.

The autumn nature night walks will take place between Monday, October 13 and Thursday, October 16, with times to be confirmed. Places will be limited to 25 people per walk, with tea and coffee served afterwards.

All details will be posted on the Rabbit Braes Development Group Facebook page over the coming weeks.

The group is also shortlisted for a Bank of Scotland Community Award which can see the group win between £500 and £3000.

The award would help the group to continue to do the good work in the area and to organise events for the local children and their families.
