CUPAR’S newly crowned Citizens of the Year received their awards at a ceremony in the County Buildings.

Joint winners Guthrie Hutton and Ian Copland were presented with framed certificates.

Guthrie and Ian — chairman and treasurer of Cupar Heritage — spearheaded successful efforts to transform the old stationmaster’s house at Cupar railway station into a heritage centre.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Guthrie said: “This award isn’t just for myself and Ian, it’s for the whole of Cupar Heritage.

“The hard work starts now — everyone must visit and make the most of this new facility in the town.”

Ian added: “This is a lesson that if you persevere, you’ll get there in the end!”

Also receiving his award was Young Citizen of the Year Jake Douglas.

Bell Baxter High School pupil Jake (13) raised nearly £600 for Cancer Research and Howe of Fife Rugby Club this summer by having his long hair shaved off.
