Dunfermline's Lights Shine Bright

With many towns cutting back on Christmas lights, Dunfermline has boosted investment to light up the High Street, New Row and Maygate.

Organised by BID company, Dunfermline Delivers, the investment by Fife Council had a clear aim – to attract season shoppers.

And it looks like it working with an overwhelming 93% of respondents to a BID member survey calling for the Winter Festival to be repeated next year.

Commenting on the investment, BID Chief Executive, Maggie Mitchell said: “We believe in the current financial climate it is more important than ever to attract shoppers and other visitors to Dunfermline.  Events such as the Winter Festival have a positive economic impact and this is something we plan to continue in 2014.  We will not loose focus on our objective which is to support our town’s businesses.”
