  • Celebrating the shortlisted nominees of the Fife Civic Recognition Awards!

    This week, Fife Council and Fife Voluntary Action celebrated and gave recognition to the shortlisted nominees for the Fife Civic Recognition Awards at an awards ceremony held at the Glen Pavilion in Dunfermline. 

    The ceremony was previously delayed due to Covid-19, but it was finally held on Wednesday 27 April with the Lord Lieutenant, Mr Robert Balfour, and the Provost of Fife, Councillor Jim Leishman, in attendance to present the awards to nominees. Our CEO, Kenny Murphy, hosted the event and we're delighted to have been able to give just recognition to those who went above and beyond during the first pandemic lockdown.

    Please remember, the judges from the Fife Partnership Board really struggled to pick out exceptions from the more than 800 nominations that were received. Those who were shortlisted are truly exceptional, but all other nominees received a recognition certificate and played a valuable role in their community - we thank each and every one of them.
