Members of Leven Community Council hope to have confirmation on whether or not world-renowned artist David Mach will design a sculpture in memory of those who fought in the battle of Arnhem by the end of the month.

At a meeting held last week, the members decided on a January 30 deadline, after months of planning.

A two day event will be held in September to mark the 70th anniversary of the historic World War Two battle, during which many Polish paratroopers who had been based in Leven and the surrounding areas fought and died in.

A budget of £50,000 has been set for the sculpture and events, and a decision will be announced at the next meeting to be held at Scoonie Bowling Club on Janury 30 at 7.00p.m.
