COMMUNITY ACTION PLAN REVIEW 

Enid Trevett and her colleagues from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust are making good progress with their review of our 2011 Community Action Plan. Analysis of the original plan informed by discussion with the Steering Group shows that more progress has been made with delivering the priorities set out in the document than might have been imagined. Most importantly, it has highlighted the wide range of individuals, groups and businesses that helped achieve this. However, much remains to be done and new needs will have emerged.

The new Kingdom Housing homes on Oakley Road and the council houses included in the Allanwater development have addressed the need for affordable homes for families but we still need similar homes for older people. The Church, Steelend Club and the Golf Club have all adapted to meet the need for places for people to gather, and we now have cafes at Bandrum and Shieldbank, but, as yet, the aspiration for a community shop and café at the heart of the villages remains unfulfilled. Both Saline and Steelend have new play parks but there is still nowhere for older children to gather. Measures have been introduced to improve road safety but speeding vehicles and heavy lorries rat-running through Saline and Steelend
remain a problem. The Heritage Society has been very successful in getting people to appreciate the place where they live through monthly meetings, the museum and graveyard, and their heritage trails. Much has been done to re-establish and extend the network of core paths. And, of course. the Community Bulletin, website and Facebook page have made it difficult for people to say they don’t know what’s going on!

However, we need feedback from everyone in the community. A simple questionnaire is available online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8kf6pqs. Paper copies will be available at the Golf Club, Steelend Club, Saline P School, the Church and in the shop. Those with the appropriate app on their phone will be able to access the survey using a QR code.


An open, public meeting early in the new year will provide the opportunity for people to set the priorities for the next five years. Look out for more details. 




SALINE PRIMARY SCHOOL 

We would like to start by sending a warm welcome to all of our new families and pupils to Saline Primary School. Our new Nursery pupils and Primary 1 pupils have settled well into school life and are already developing their self-help skills and their independence in many ways. We have also enrolled further pupils throughout the school and would like to welcome Millie, Ethan, Ben, Caleb, Elise and Innes.

Our School, House and Vice Captains have also been allocated following successful online applications through Microsoft Teams. These are as follows:

  School Captains: Layla D & Harry W

  Devonside House: Callum M (C) & Tenisha S (V) - with a responsibility for Enterprise

  Kinneddar House: Alex B (C) & Anna B (V) – with a responsibility for Charity initiatives

  Sheardrum House: Ella F (C) & Sally C (V) – with a responsibility for Health & Wellbeing ideas

  Killernie House: Hadi S (C) & Katie H (V) – with a responsibility for Recycling initiatives

  Sports Leaders: Paul M (C), Kerr P (V) & Savannah M (V) – developing activities in school and the playground.

We will also be continuing with the Junior Leadership Pathway with support from Fife Active Schools and will also be introducing Digital Leaders, Peer Mediators and a variety of pupil lead lunch clubs. More exciting news to follow!


Our recycling was very successful last term and we have signed up with Terracycle to be a collection point for a variety of recyclable items including tooth brushes and toothpaste tubes, batteries and crisp packets. We are looking to extend this further and more information will follow in due course. We are supporting the Crisps for Helimed79 appeal and will recycle our crisp packets to send onto them. This supports our learning around the Sustainable Development Goals.

Look out for us when we are out and about on our outdoor learning and give us a wave or say hello! You can follow our school adventures on Twitter @Salineps.

OAKLEY HEALTH CENTRE 

Historically there has been two entirely separate practices within Oakley Health Centre. This has worked well for many years; however, it has restricted the patient’s choice of a medical team and has meant that, when a GP partner is on annual leave, there is immense pressure on the remaining partner.

As I’m sure you will be aware from the local media, High Valleyfield Medical Practice has been unable to recruit sufficient GPs to cover their practice population and therefore the practice was handed back to be run under NHS Fife control back in July. Here in Oakley, we have cross-boundary areas that we share with High Valleyfield. A decision was taken to encourage the patients in the cross-boundary areas to register with us in Oakley.



This presented an exciting opportunity for the practice and the patient population of Oakley Health Centre. Due to the increased patient numbers, this has allowed us to increase the size of our practice team and indeed the amount of specialist medical treatment our patients can access. It also made sense when increasing the number of GPs to rethink the business model and, for sustainability in the future, merge the practices.

The positives for our patients are:

    · Greater access to on the day and routine appointments.

    · Greater access to choose GP, now six as opposed to two or three before.

    · Reassurance that the practice is sustainable for the future (bearing in mind that we do have a couple of older GPs who will look to retire sometime!).

    · A larger Practice team, encompassing a Physician Associate, an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, a physiotherapist, and a pharmacist as well as the usual GPs and Practice Nursing Team.

We appreciate the patient support as we go through this merger.

The open flu clinic as usual is on the last Saturday in October: 26 October 08.30am to 11.30am.

SALINE AND STEELEND FIREWORK DISPLAY 2019 

Final arrangements are now being made for our 2019 Firework Display on Friday 8 November at Saline Golf Club. People can gather from 5.30pm with the fireworks themselves at 7.00pm. We have received a smaller grant from Fife Council than we did last year so we are more reliant on donations from local businesses and monies from the sale of raffle tickets. Knockhill Racing Circuit, Bandrum Residential Home and Campion Homes have all pledged their support. Raffle tickets are on sale at Saline Golf Club and Steelend Club, and there will people selling them door to door and in the school playground. 

If you would be prepared to sell raffle tickets in your street, please email 

If you would like to donate a raffle prize, such toiletries, a bottle of wine, or a box of chocolates for example, they can be left at the Golf Club. Help make our event bigger and better than last year!




BEAUTIFUL FIFE AWARDS 

Saline and Steelend is an attractive place to live so it is something of a surprise that, unlike Carnock, Cairneyhill, Charlestown, Crombie and Low Valleyfield, we have never received a Beautiful Fife Award. Over the years, a small band of dedicated local people has worked hard to enhance the appearance of our community with planting boxes, floral displays and drifts of wild flowers. Perhaps this is the time for a group to come forward to take on the challenge of entering Saline and Steelend in next year’s Beautiful Fife Awards?




WOULD YOU LIKE TO SERVE YOUR COMMUNITY? 

The next Community Council meeting on 29 October will include a very short AGM to appoint Office Bearers. The current Community Council was elected last year; however, there are vacancies, and these can be filled at the AGM. So, if you feel you would like to be more active in our community, please consider putting yourself forward. This is no time to be modest! 

If you would like to know about the role, please ring David Chisholm on 853168.



116th FIFE SCOUT GROUP 

Since the start of this term we have had a steady influx of young people joining our Beaver Colony; we are now back up to 18 in number. We also have been very fortunate to recruit an Assistant Beaver Leader to support our Beaver Leader. We would still like to recruit another adult either as an Assistant Leader or as Sectional Assistant. The Beavers took part in the District Sports Day at Pitreavie Sports Stadium on Sunday 29 Sept. Planning is also underway for the District Beaver Christmas Part on Saturday 23 November between 2.00-5.00pm in Abbeyview Community Centre. It is hoped to hold the postponed Beaver Sleep Over in November; more of this to follow.

The Cubs and younger Scouts enjoyed a camp at Nineacres, Crook of Devon, despite heavy rain and strong winds. Nevertheless, they managed several outdoor activities such as archery, a day hike and a camp fire, not to mention the endless fun in and around the burn and swimming pool. As with the Beavers, the Cubs are taking part in the District Sports Day, but this time from 1 to 5 pm. Also on the cards, some of the Cubs will be joining others from the District at Fordell Firs for JOTA (Jamboree On The Air) to gain their Communicators Badge. Places are limited so get your name in quick.

At the moment, despite having healthy numbers in the Scout Troop, we are struggling to get enough Leaders to be able to run weekly meetings. In the meantime, camps have been put on hold. It is our aim to re-start camping after the October holiday. Though we have not had any returns from Scouts wishing to attend the District Sports Day, it is hoped there will be some last-minute entries. There will be no meetings during the October School Holiday ie on 10/11 and 17/18 October. Meetings will resume on 23/24 October.

COMMUNITY COUNCIL MATTERS 

There was a poor attendance on a horrible night at September's meeting. Nevertheless, a broad range of issues was discussed.

Traffic and Road Safety

David Chisholm will be arguing for an updated traffic and road safety strategy for West Fife at a meeting of the West Fife Forum on the 30 September. Hopefully, this will lead to action on speed limits and restrictions on lorry routes that will benefit all communities.

One piece of good news is that two people have volunteered to join Community Speedwatch while others from elsewhere are known to have offered their services to the Police. However, it seems that the Police don't have the resources to provide training at present. Hopefully, this will be resolved to enable Community Speedwatch to be more active in the lighter months.

It appears that people have taken notice of the request to stop parking on the pavement on Oakley Road.

Complaints continue about potholes. Cllr Manekshaw outlined Transportation's new approach to dealing with this and of the delegation of decisions to our three Councillors. It is important to note that Transportation tends to respond quickly to reports of potholes, defective streetlights, etc made through Fife Direct.

Saline Community Centre

The consultant provided by Scottish Community Enterprise has started work and has already contacted the prospective pharmacist. She also attended a session of the Saline Smilers (toddlers) group, and mums and grans took an opportunity to talk about the activities that might be introduced if the building was open every day. She has a copy of Fife Council’s schedule of repairs and details of groups already using the building and the income from these activities.

As reported previously, she will also be considering the benefits of taking the council garages into community ownership.

Street Orderly

The petition to reinstate our street orderly has been dismissed. Cllr Manekshaw advised that the previous system of separate departments for street cleaning and grounds maintenance has been reinstated and that functions will be carried out by teams covering the ward rather than individual communities. These will report to the three Councillors.

Blair House Site Restoration

Representatives from our Community Council, Oakley Community Council and Kinneddar Park/Cowstrandburn were treated to a visit to the site by the Scottish Mines Restoration Trust. Remarkable progress has been made with spoil heaps reshaped to more natural profiles and areas sowed with grass. Trespass on the site continues to be a problem with off road vehicles using it as a race track.

The reshaping of the site will be completed shortly, and it will then be sold to Forestry and Lands Scotland (formerly Forestry Commission Scotland). Once this takes place there will be consultations on how best to create a facility that can be enjoyed by all sections of the community as well as visitors. FLS's indicative layout and planting strategy is on display in Saline Golf Club. Please note that the drawing is indicative and that final proposals will be agreed via the consultations.

Witchcraft Victims

At August's meeting Cllr Kate Stewart advised of the possibility of erecting a national monument to the women who were effectively murdered following accusations of being witches. 4,000 unfortunate women were executed, usually by burning, in Scotland in the 16th and 17th Centuries. Fife had a particularly high proportion of these. One Torryburn woman, Lilias Adie, died in custody and, unusually, was buried rather than the usual custom of throwing victims into the sea or rivers. Apparently, people thought that the devil could reincarnate witches who hadn't been disposed of in water, so her grave was sealed with a huge slab to stop her exacting revenge. The site of her grave is known and is felt to be an appropriate site for the monument.




[Editor’s Note: I was present at the conference at the Glen Pavilion when the memorial was first mooted and asked about records for Saline; apparently there are no records at all about witches in Saline parish so either Saline was more tolerant, or records have been lost – unless anybody in the parish knows better!]

Police

This month's Police Newsletter reveals that 33 calls from Saline and Steelend were received but there were no reported crimes. However, a disturbing incident of a suspected prowler on the Allanwater estate is a reminder to be vigilant and report suspicions to the police. The milkman story on Facebook was funny but it is better to be safe than sorry.

Date of Next Meeting

Tuesday 29 October at 7.30pm in Saline Community Centre. This will also be the (short) AGM. All welcome.




NEW ACTIVITIES IN SALINE COMMUNITY CENTRE 

Di Crawford has started her Yoga classes in Saline Community Centre again. It's a beginner Hatha Yoga class that meets at 7.30pm on Tuesdays. Although Di provides most equipment such as blocks, bricks and belts, it's best if people bring a yoga mat as her supplies are limited. The cost of classes is six sessions for £30 or the drop-in rate of £6 per class.

George Orr has also restarted his popular Circuit Training on Thursdays between 8.00pm and 9.00pm. Cost is a modest £5 with obvious health benefits.

A really welcome development is that the Smilers group for toddlers has started again. This gives the children a chance to play and make friends and for mums and grans to have a good blether with tea/coffee and biscuits/cake. They meet on Tuesdays between 9.00am and 11.00am and are really sociable.

It is important that facilities like these, and existing ones like badminton, are well patronised to ensure their sustainability and that of the centre. All are very reasonably priced so please give them a try.




SUBSIDISED PUBLIC TRANSPORT CONVERSATIONS 

Fife Council currently spends £22m each year to subsidise transport, which includes our 28, evening and Sunday services, and school transport. The Council is now asking residents to find out more about the passenger services it provides to help lots of people to travel around Fife for a variety of reasons.

Over the year ahead, the Council wants Fifers to help it explore whether its resources could be used differently for better results. This is about working together to design the best solutions for the future.

The Council has published a range of information on-line at http://our.fife.scot/transportingpeople to help people understand what is presently invested and why it is important. This includes supported local bus services, rail concessions, school transport and demand-responsive transport.

People now have a chance to understand the impact that these services have on our lives, how much they cost and to tell the Council what they think already works well or to ask questions about the services


In October and November, people will be asked about what solutions they would like to see in an ideal world. 

This will involve an interactive online conversation where residents will be able to rate and comment on each other's ideas, as well as face-to-face conversations with transportation users.

In early 2020, the Council will start to consider how ‘the dream’ matches up with policy, legislation, existing contracts and other practicalities. This will allow it to refine ideas and gather some more specific feedback. Later in 2020, some concrete options will be put up for a vote.

This not a traditional consultation process. Several phases of engagement, including opportunities to get involved offline as well as online, will examine a complex set of services that are inextricably linked to other public services and other aspects of community life.

This is one of the ways in which the Council is taking forward Participatory Budgeting in Fife. It is a new approach and the council will be learning from it as it goes. You can find out more about Participatory Budgeting, and what the Council is looking to achieve, at https://pb.scotland.scot/charter

The first phase of the exercise is live now, with information available at http://our.fife.scot/transportingpeople

To join online debates and submit feedback, you need to register with a new citizen participation platform Let’s Talk about Our Fife. This platform is being developed by COSLA for Scottish councils to use. It will increasingly allow the Council to open up debates and gather feedback, as well as letting residents share ideas and submit proposals, comment on others' input and participate in votes and polls. Through the various sections of the system, citizen-generated ideas can lead to actions by Fife Council and its partners

Public transport is vitally important to our community. Without it many would effectively be isolated. Please take this opportunity to have your say.




HELP A BROWNIE 

The Brownie Pack are in desperate need of adult help. We meet on a Thursday in the Church Hall from 6.30pm to 8.00pm; leaders arrive at around 6.00pm and leave by 8.30pm. We would like a person or persons willing to commit to attending on a weekly basis. No previous experience in guiding is needed.

In addition, the Saline Baby and Toddler Group meets on Tuesday between 9.30am and 11.30am at Saline Community Centre. The charge of £2.50 also includes tea or coffee, and a children’s snack. See Facebook group for more information.

SALINE & DISTRICT HERITAGE SOCIETY 

Open Doors day was well attended, and people seemed to enjoy visiting the church, museum and graveyard. Thank you to everyone who helped with and supported the event. Our second speaker event is on Wednesday 18 October, 7 for 7.30pm, Mary Queen of Scots at Loch Leven Castle. Were the keys to the castle really flung in the loch? How long was she imprisoned there? Professor David Munro is our speaker and will answer these questions and many more.

We are hoping to hold a Christmas quiz night sometime in December; the theme is currently secret, but more will be revealed in the coming weeks.




SALINE & BLAIRINGONE PARISH CHURCH NEWS 

Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Charities: Thank you to everyone who supported the Coffee Morning on 25 September when the excellent sum of £260 was raised. If anyone who was unable to come on Wednesday would like to contribute, donations can be given to the church treasurer, Stewart Miller, to be forwarded to the charity. Cathie Hall and Margaret Graham were the winners of the two competitions.

Holiday Club: planned for Monday 21 October (an in-service day following the October holiday) will run from 10.00 am to 12.45pm. The programme of games, songs, stories, crafts, and food will suit any primary school children. Parents/guardians are welcome to stay and/or join us for lunch at 12.15pm. The cost will be £1 per child or £2 for a family. Further information can be found through the church website.

Harvest Thanksgiving: will be celebrated on Sunday 13 October at 9.00am. All are welcome to join us at the service which will be followed by a Bring and Share Brunch in the Church Hall. As in previous years, there will be the opportunity to give a Thanksgiving offering. This year we will be supporting the Cyrenians who are based in Edinburgh but also work in Midlothian and Fife. The charity works through a number of projects and in cooperation with other agencies in helping people in difficulty for various reasons find accommodation or emergency supplies and suitable training or employment, and to establish themselves back into the community.

Ceilidh: This regular event in the church calendar has had to be postponed from 16 November as originally planned. It is hoped to hold this early in the new year and details will be available in due course.




NURSERY NEEDS A HAND (OR FEW) 

Saline Nursery is in desperate need of volunteers over the October holidays as we are revamping our nursery garden and fitting a new kitchen. If anyone has a couple of hours (or more!) to spare, we would be very grateful. Call or text Clare on 07759 348837.




VACANT SITE ON MAIN STREET, SALINE 

Elsewhere in this Bulletin you will have read about the progress that is being made in reviewing and updating our 2011 Community Action Plan. Amongst the opportunities included in the plan is bringing the vacant site on Saline Main Street, opposite the shop, back into use. Sadly, little progress has been made. A variety of suggestions have been made over the years; allotments, community growing space, three or four ‘alms-house’ style homes for older people, café and shop. Even a car park to alleviate parking problems on the road! None has found a ‘champion’ to take an idea forward. Contrary to the rumour that was circulating on Facebook some weeks ago, Fife Council has not sold it off. It is still in Council ownership, but their affordable housing team has deemed it ‘too small’ and consequently it will be marketed as a ‘development opportunity’. The Community Empowerment Act and money available from Scottish Government for asset transfer makes it viable for communities themselves to sponsor development. As recent events have demonstrated, many of those in in positions of power and authority have shown themselves to be unwilling or incapable of delivering what local communities themselves believe to be in their interest. This is the time for local people to take a lead.

Most recently P5, 6, 7s from the primary school spent many hours of ‘outdoor learning’ time clearing the site, only to be told that they can have no further use of it. Many people feel that in the short term the school must be supported in developing the site for ‘learning’. If you feel strongly about this issue, please come along to the next Community Council meeting on Tuesday 29 October and share your views. Alternatively convey them to the Bulletin Team at editorsandsbulletin@gmail. Make sure include that second ‘s’ in the email address!




ACCESS TO MUIRSIDE 

Many people who have used the tortuous route through the Allanwater site to access Forestry and Lands Scotland’s Muirside estate will be pleased to learn that it will become easier. A 2m wide strip of the land currently being used by Allanwater, adjacent to the last bungalow on that side of Oakley Road, is owned by FLS. Permissions and funding are being sought to create a gated access through the stone wall, and a ramp down to where the footpath begins. This will be especially valuable to the school, who currently use a path through the muddy field from the bus turning circle to get to the Community Orchard. Also, discussions are taking place to see whether a simple ‘outdoor classroom’ might be constructed at the orchard to provide a measure of shelter for staff and children.
