by jamescalder on 20 May, 2022

Dunfermline’s Liberal Democrat Councillors James Calder (Dunfermline South) and Aude Boubaker-Calder (Dunfermline Central) have welcomed the granting of Official City Status for Dunfermline as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations.

Councillor Calder has said,

As Scotland’s ancient capital with a great heritage, the honour of official city status is richly deserved by Dunfermline.

With both the history as well as being one of Scotland’s foremost settlements in recent years, I always felt as though our bid had the edge.

I want to congratulate the team behind our bid on a job well done. This will give everyone in Dunfermline and the wider area a much-needed boost.

Councillor Boubaker-Calder added,

This is wonderful news, and I am so happy to hear about it.

Dunfermline has so much to offer, and as Scotland’s newest official city, this shows the potential of Dunfermline.

I Hope this status can have a great economic impact and bring more people including tourists to our wonderful city.
