  • Dunfermline awarded city status

    Created: 20/05/2022

    An interesting piece of news for the people of Fife is that Dunfermline has been awarded city status to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

    The former town in Fife was chosen along with seven other places following a competition held once every 10 years.

    The Platinum Jubilee Civic Honours Competition required applicants to demonstrate their unique communities and distinct local identity.

    They were also asked to highlight their royal associations and cultural heritage.

    The other locations granted city status were Bangor in Northern Ireland, Colchester, Doncaster and Milton Keynes in England, Douglas in the Isle of Man, Stanley in the Falkland Islands and Wrexham in Wales.
