Not a Fife resident? Don’t worry we have a series of virtual public meetings planned for around Scotland throughout 2021

Letham Flower Show and Gymkhana

The Letham Flower Show and Gymkhana have always proved popular and we were sorry to
have had to cancel both events last year.
Whilst there is no guarantee that we will be able to hold either a Show or a Gymkhana this year
we have decided to start the preparations for both.
It is planned to hold the Show in Letham Village Hall on Saturday 14 August. The Gymkhana
would then be held at the Fife Riding Club on Sunday 22 August.
We therefore attach a Schedule for the 2021 Flower Show to this note. We hope this will give
you time to plan your entries and also provide some activities that could be done in lockdown.
The Schedule for the Gymkhana will be made available at a later date.
We will provide you with updates during the year, on the Letham Website and on our Facebook
page , as to how things are going with both the preparations for the Flower Show and
Gymkhana
We hope to see you all at the Show and the Gymkhana.

Santa is visiting Letham!

Hi everyone the route for Santa will begin at 6pm at the bottom of the school steps. He will be ringing bells so listen out for him. He will then walk down the Brae then along both side roads on the Brae. Leaving there he will head down and along the farm road then back along by the bus stop then along Monimail Road. After leaving Monimail road he will head down the Row finishing at the Village hall car park. He will not be going to the houses on the A92 so he doesn’t distract any drivers but will happily social distance in the hall car park grounds for anyone from there. This route will obviously take Santa a bit of time so don’t expect him to be on all your doorsteps at 6pm.

He will be out this Christmas Eve so please do come out and give him a wave. Merry Christmas to you all ?

Flood Alert from Scottish Water

In response to the amber weather warning which has been issued covering the North-East and part of Tayside over Saturday evening and Sunday morning, Scottish Water is making preparations to enable us to respond as quickly as possible if customers are impacted by flooding. As Fife is on the periphery of this weather forecast we are including you in this advisory information which we hope is useful to you in the communities that you serve.

During periods of very heavy rainfall, drainage systems – including sewers, culverted watercourse and road drains – may be temporarily unable to cope with the volume of surface water they receive in a short period from land, buildings, footpaths and roadways, resulting in flooding from our sewer networks.

While the rapid effects of storms across a wide area present a significant challenge to our frontline teams and our emergency response partners, we are preparing in order to be able to assist customers as quickly as we can if flooding occurs. Scottish Water will attend and support clean-up for customers after sewer flooding is reported to us, prioritising the severest cases where customers are impacted within their homes. We would encourage your constituents to contact our 24/7 customer service centre via our online reporting portal or on 0800 077 8778 to report flooding and request assistance. We work closely with local authorities who have responsibilities for road drainage, as well as for river and tidal flooding.

If you are receiving contact from residents regarding any storm-related sewer flooding in your area, there is a lot of useful information on our website, including details to help any affected customers contact Scottish Water directly – see https://www.scottishwater.co.uk/in-your-area/service-updates/flash-flooding-alert . 

Up to date Flood Alerts and Warning can be found on the Floodline Scotland website atwww.floodlinescotland.org.uk/flood-updates.

We will continue to monitor weather systems and alerts to ensure our customer response teams are ready to respond as quickly as possible to flooding events.
