PROJECT Twilight has seen some impact on the amount of litter being thrown about in public parks and other areas.

Cowdenbeath Area Committee heard that the purpose of the campaign was to carry out focussed patrols in problematic areas in twilight times, both morning and evening.

Safer Communities team manager, Kirstie Freeman, told councillors that it was a week long initiative in the area which saw officers engage with many members of the public in places like Lochgelly Public Park.

"We were able to give advice about dog fouling, littering and dog control as well as issuing warnings where it was appropriate," said Ms Freeman.

"As the week progressed officers noted a marked improvement regarding these issues and it is the intention to roll out this campaign in the coming year in other parts of the area."

The team manager also explained that Safer Communities Officers had been involved supporting litter picks with pupils at Beath High School and had visited various primary schools to speak to pupils about their job and the many environmental issues that they were involved in on a weekly basis.
