Torryburn Beach Clean Up 2016
As can be seen from the photograph an excellent job was carried out despite the inclement weather conditions
Maybe one explanation why the majority of Rotary Beach Cleaners at Torryburn on Sunday 12th June were new members .............. newer members are more bendy!!!
Jeremy certainly wasn't very bendy due to a sore back but Martin, Robert and Aileen, Fraser, Keith, Brian, Dave, Robin P and Ewan were all bending to pick up rubbish (apologies for missing anyone else). Neil was late but made up by finding a particularly large juicy carpet ?!
NB: Please note the words on the sign in the photo below which says it all !!! ......... “ This area is cleared of litter by Fife Community Offenders Payback scheme !!”
Stephanie provided hot tea and short bread was far nicer than “ bread and water” for the Offenders .
Many thanks to all who came along to help
Stuart Nicol subsequently received the undernoted letter from
Susan Donald, Secretary of the Torryburn & Newmills Community Council
“I am writing to you on behalf of Torryburn & Newmills Community Council to that you and your fellow Rotarians for the splendid help in our beach clean-up in June.
Forgive the message taking so long to be delivered, I am afraid I was on holiday then there were no more community council meetings!
Your help was minuted at the next meeting with our appreciation that Stephanie Blackden had arranged it.
The Fife Riviera, Torryburn Beach is not, but it is an area adored by the people who live here and many visitors who stop and walk. Years ago that walk could be rather disgusting with some of the debris lying on the beach and those walkers owe you a big thank you too. Just a shame none of them seem to turn up and help to maintain it!.”
