I am writing to say how impressed we were during our holiday in St.Monans last week.
We thought the Burgh was beautiful – so very neat and tidy everywhere, with beautiful flowers and plants. I read somewhere there are litter pickers which seems an excellent idea. The Wellie Garden is amazing and something we’ve never seen before. We were ashamed to think that this type of community effort could not happen here in our town. For one thing not all, but some of the younger element of the town, would destroy such a thing whether through boredom or for dare or devilment.
There has actually been correspondence in our local paper this week complaining about the lack of floral displays in our town – not that many years ago we were winning Britain in Bloom.
We also thought everyone was very friendly – everyone spoke to us when we were in St. Monans or walking on the coastal paths.
We did our best to support the local Spar shop and did almost all of our shopping there – being as we were self-catering. Janet and her colleagues were lovely giving us tips and weather forecasts!
We hope it won’t be too long before we come back.
