Thank you to all those who made the Public Meeting on Wednesday. Your support and ideas were very much appreciated.
We captured many thoughts and ideas and are now taking these forward.
The key messages we want to get across are that we will not accept this readily, that there are real people who will be impacted in many different ways and that the consultation process is fundamentally flawed.
Already you will hopefully have seen the redecorated junction- all part of the ‘lets make some noise’ approach. Please keep adding to it.
The Communty Council Chair has now written to Stagecoach and will send this correspondence to elected representatives too.
Stephen Gethins MP has also written to both the Council and Stagecoach representing our concerns.
The decision date is 4th July so we must do what we can to influence Councillors now that the consultation is closed.
Please canvass them, and please sign the change.org petition. (Over 475 signatures already!). We will be doing some media work this week and engaging with the elected representatives but an email, phone call or letter always helps to show the strength of feeling.
There will be a public meeting in Letham Village Hall at 7.30pm on Wednesady 22nd June 2016 to discuss the villages response to the proposed withdrawal of the X54 coach service.
Please come along, express your views and help us plan how we are going to fight this proposal.
We have just become aware of a proposal to remove the X54 Bus service from the A92. Instead a new service will route from Melville Lodges roundabout via Cupar to Dundee.
This will have significant effect for Letham residents and increase the 25 minute journey to Dundee to over an hour. Buses for villagers who regularly commute to Dundee or Glenrothes on the A92 will disappear.
There is a lot of anger and concern re this proposal and we will fight this vigorously and passionately.
In the first instance we would encourage you to compete the consultation feedback form at
Where full details are available to read.
The consultation closes 24th JUNE 2016
We would also encourage you to compete the online petition at
The Community Councillors will consider how best to respond to this threat to the village and a public meeting or extraordinary meeting of the Community Council is likely.
Details will be posted here.
The 2016 schedule has now been finalised and is available on the Gymkhana page (under “Categories” on the left hand side of this page). Hope to see you there!
