On duty at Burntisland Civic Week Raft Race
A large hole has recently appeared in the appeared in the soft surfacing under the popular flying fox.
If not fixed soon it’s likely there will be further damage to the protective surface covering the concrete.

John Thomson of Thomson’s Event Group said “the wheel is scheduled to be in Burntisland for two weeks potentially three depending on how popular it is.”
Should be busy on Games Day – “The 367th Burntisland Highland Games will take place on Monday 15th July 2019 at 11:00”.
The price of the ride is £3.50 per person, £12 for a family of 4 (two adults and two children).

After realising that more than half of the town’s existing play parks are under threat, local groups have formed to help plan for a better future for them.
In general the idea is to concentrate (and maintain) equipment in fewer places. “Neighbourhood” play parks are likely lose basic equipment such as swings and become “greenspaces for play”.
Improving areas for play, is clearly a good idea. Removing ‘traditional’ equipment might be less wise.
Today residents from the Duncanson Drive area painted the surviving play equipment with paint supplied by the Community Council. Fife Council erected temporary fencing to protect the drying paint.
They are also planning to add more equipment plus places to sit and suitable shrubs and trees.
