NORTH East Fife’s new MSP, Rod Campbell, has chosen Peter Cura as his ‘local hero’.
Each MSP is invited to nominate one ‘local hero’, who will take part in the riding procession to the Scottish Parliament on July 1, alongside MSPs and their guests.
Her Majesty The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the Presiding Officer and the First Minister will greet the arrival of the riding procession in front of the Scottish Parliament building for a ceremony which will celebrate the opening of the new session of Parliament.
Mr Campbell said:“I have received a large number of nominations and have decided to nominate Peter Cura, a health services campaigner and local community activist of long-standing from Cupar.
“Peter is a man who has contributed a great deal to the community, fund-raising for a community café within the Adamson Hospital in more recent years, as well as having campaigned for the retention of the Stratheden Hospital in the past.
“He also serves as the health spokesman on Cupar Community Council.
He added: “I am delighted to nominate Peter Cura to be the ‘local hero’ for North East Fife, as he has proven himself to be an outstanding contributor to community life.
“I am sure the people of the area will be proud to have Mr Cura as their representative.”
