Fife Sports and Leisure Trust bosses have been challenged to face the public over controversial plans to slash opening hours at centres in Cupar and St Andrews.

It was around 11-and-a-half years ago that the Fife Sports and Leisure Trust was established as a non-profit distributing organisation, limited by guarantee, to operate and manage sports and leisure facilities on behalf of Fife Council.
Pressure has been put on Fife’s leading provider of sports and leisure facilities to perform a u-turn over plans to cut opening hours at centres in north east Fife.
Fitness fans and families in Cupar and St Andrews have reacted with fury to plans to close leisure centres early at weekends and curtail opening hours during the week.
A number of health and safety contraventions led to a major chemical leak at a St Andrews leisure centre last year, it has emerged.
Firefighters in St Andrews tackled a gorse fire near the East Sands Leisure Centre early on Wednesday morning.
