One Month to go … 11th August 2018

Just a reminder that it is just over a month to the Flower Show and if you have not already done so it’s time to start organising your entries.

 

Children’s Sunflower and Potato Competitions.

Hopefully the good weather will mean that you have a sunflower that is ginormous in your garden and enough potatoes to keep Kettle Crisps in production for a month.

 

Do not despair if that is not the case – careful watering and feeding over the next few weeks could make all the difference.

Judging will take place on Sunday 5 August and if you want your sunflower measured and/ or potatoes weighed please let Alison McDonald know by Friday 3 August. (Telephone 01337 810250) If you are not to be at home please make sure your sunflowers and potato grow bags are clearly labelled.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO LEAVE YOUR POTATOES IN THEIR GROW BAGS

 

Helpers for Setting up and on the day

As always, we would appreciate any help setting up on the Thursday night (9TH) and for marking on the day of the show.

 

Arrangements for setting up are simply meet at the hall on Thursday Night at 6.30PM and be ready to muck in.

 

Markers are needed on the day of the show and all volunteers are welcome.  If it is your first time you will be paired with someone who has done it before.  

 

Also volunteers to man the door, the raffle, and help out in general are always welcome.

Melville Landfill Site Update

Read More

Lower Melville Wood landfill was inspected on 14 February 2018. Pockets of landfill gas were detected at the base of the western and northern slopes of Phase 4, Cells 1 & 2. The site manager was made aware of this after the inspection.

All of the seven new boreholes are now connected to the gas management system. SEPA are undertaking two odour assessments per week. Sometimes landfill gas has been detected during these assessments but it has not been regarded as being ‘offensive’. The detection of landfill gas emissions varies depending on atmospheric conditions.
A Construction Quality Assurance (CQA) plan has been received (02 February 2018) from Fife Council’s consultants for the capping of Phase 4, Cells 1 & 2.  SEPA is currently assessing the proposals and will make comment shortly. Once the CQA plan is agreed, contractors will be installing a capping layer. This should reduce the fugitive landfill gas emissions.

Some material is required for completion of the cells in Phase 4, cells 1 & 2 to build up the height for capping work.  However, most landfilling is now taking place in Phase 3, Cell 2 which is located close to the wind turbine. 

I have spoken to Michael Lee this morning. Michael is one of the site managers at Lower Melville Wood Landfill. He advises that the infilling of Phase 4 is nearly complete and this should be finished within 2-3 weeks.   

If you experience any offensive odours from the landfill please contact me at the Glenrothes office on 01592 776910.
