King Charles III coronation: Fife unveils plans including an afternoon tea
and live on Freeview channel 276
The ceremony on Monday, May 8, will be marked with a public holiday and all schools will be closed.
It will be held at the Glen Pavilion in Dunfermline.
The local authority wants Fifers to nominate guests to attend the special event - deserving volunteers from communities or organisations - who will be invited at random.
The council has also launched a web page to help groups and individuals plan their own celebrations.
Steve Grimmond, chief executive said: “Fife has many dedicated volunteers who work hard throughout the year, supporting a community or a cause and the Lord-Lieutenant and Provost wanted to use this Volunteers Day during the Coronation celebrations to say thank you.
“We’re asking you to nominate a deserving volunteer from your community or organisation. The guests will be selected randomly, and successful nominees will receive two invitations - one for them and a plus one - by post in the coming weeks.”
The council will mark the coronation with a day's holiday. Most staff will get an extra day off and most council buildings and services will be closed.
“Schools will also be closed, but Mr Grimmond said: “We appreciate that schools have been affected recently by national strike action. However, a national holiday has been declared and as a council we believe it's important that families across the Kingdom can spend the day together.”
