Plans made for May fair day on Prom

Leven community group is hoping to gather support from local residents as it looks to organise a fair day on Leven Promenade.

The group - which usually operates under the Leven Community Council title, but is still to be ratified after an administration error late last year - wants to see the Prom full of hustle and bustle again and is proposing to hold a craft fair and fun day on the first weekend in May.

As well as bringing the putting green back into action, the group hopes to offer craft stalls, fun activities for the kids, live music from local bands and even a BBQ.

This event would be the first the group has held since its hugley successful Arnhem memorial weekend, which saw hundreds of people come to the Promenade to witness the unveiling of a new memorial to those who fought in the Battle of Arnhem.

And as well as the event in May, the group has also been looking at its wider events calender for the whole of 2015, and is keen to get a few things off the ground.

Alistair Suttie, chairman, said: “(The craft fair) will be a mix of stalls and entertainment. Our group is also looking at the possibility of staging a public firework display, again based on the Promenade. Initial discussions have taken place and we will have someone who organises these events along to our March meeting to give us more details. If anyone knows of any anniversary this year, relevant to Leven, we would be happy to incorporate that into either or both of these events.”

Group member Mary Parry, who was previously involved with fayre events at Letham Glen, said it was sure to bring huge crowds.

“When we held the craft fayre at the Glen, we had over 500 people there, so it would be great.”
