The Letham Flower Show has been cancelled for this year.
We had hoped to have the Show this year but after careful consideration of the recent Covid guidance implemented from the 19 July there were still a number of issues that would make setting up and running the Show this year very difficult.
There is no guarantee that things will change at the next proposed review. In addition the closeness of the next proposed review to the actual Show also makes compliance with any further changes to guidance very difficult.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you on Saturday 13 August 2022.
There has been a notable increase in the amount of dog fouling in the paths and open areas in and around Letham.
Here are 3 reasons why you should pick up your dog’s mess off paths, roads and verges (including farm tracks)
- It’s ANTI SOCIAL. Nobody like standing in it, nobody likes seeing it, nobody likes smelling it. We are privileged to live in such a beautiful area and runners, cyclist and children frequently use the paths and tracks in the area.
- It’s DANGEROUS. The Toxicara Roundworm is a parasite that exists naturally in most dogs but which is found in dog faeces. (This one has just eaten its way out of a child’s eye.) This can cause blindness, brain or liver damage. Children under 10 are most at risk.
- Its ILLEGAL. The Dog Fouling (Scotland) Act 2003 makes it an offence not to clear up after you. Not being aware of your dog defecating is not an excuse nor is not having a bag. The legislation applies to any public open place and only requires one eyewitness.
Please pick up your dogs mess and deposit in any of the village’s bins.
Sign up now for our next virtual public meeting. Residents of Fife are invited to join us online from 7pm – 8:30pm on Wednesday 24 March to find out more about land reform and the role of land in creating a successful Scotland.
There will be a short presentation followed by a Q&A session with our Chair Andrew Thin, and Land Commissioners Megan MacInnes and David Adams.
Not a Fife resident? Don’t worry we have a series of virtual public meetings planned for around Scotland throughout 2021
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
We hope to see you all at the Show and the Gymkhana.
