The efforts of hard working community group Cupar in Bloom has been officially recognised at Westminster.

North East Fife MP Stephen Gethins lodged an Early Day Motion calling on the House of Commons to mark the achievements of the volunteer committee which recently received the Royal Horticultural Society’s Gold Award and the discretionary Young People’s Award in the prestigious Britain in Bloom competition.

Stephen’s motion received cross-party support in the House.

He said: “The Cupar in Bloom committee and its volunteers have achieved much success recently. This is in large part to the hard work of everyone involved and who has made a contribution. Their work is clear for all to see in the town. I’d like to pass on my thanks and congratulations to all involved.”

Cupar in Bloom chairperson Mary Law said she was delighted Stephen had taken the time to have the efforts of all volunteers recorded.

“I’m delighted to have the achievements formally recognised. The volunteers have worked very hard over the years and are extremely committed to Cupar. Everyone has their own strengths and part to play and I’m sure this has contributed to our success in Britain in Bloom.”
