Purple Week Round Up

DUNFERMLINE’S PURPLE FESTIVITES CELEBRATE ‘SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENT’

Awareness of Dunfermline’s Purple Flag status is at an all time high.  That’s according to Dunfermline Delivers’ Chief Executive Maggie Mitchell which organised a week of celebration to mark the achievement.

From lilac and lavender, to plum and pomegranate businesses across the city got behind the weeklong movement – with Purple balloons from Create @ Cloud, and The Green Room’s ‘purple salad’ amongst some of the creative executions.

Also available were purple flip-flops handed out by street pastors to help those home after a long-night out, along with members of security and taxi marshals ready to help in their purple ties.

Dunfermline Town was transformed with purple bunting and banners – along with the help of some delightful purple window displays thanks to Ms. Pauley’s, Jessops, Co-op Pharmacy, Specsavers, Ali’s Cave, Pink String and Sealing Wax.

Dunfermline residents were also given a musical treat as Purple Buskers performed at Tower House, alongside an exciting radio competition, which reached 48,000 listeners and was well received within Kingdom FM’s audience.

Along with The Green Room, food establishments Grill 48, Weatherspoons and Alberto’s Kitchen & Harlem got involved, as well as purple shots (blackcurrant Sourz) on offer at PJ Molloys.

Maggie at Dunfermline Delivers said: “It has been a great week for the whole town – with support from many of our businesses and residents in showcasing our new purple flag status! I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved and express my gratitude to all involved in making Dunfermline worthy of the title.’

Notes to Editor

Dunfermline, alongside Aberdeen, was the first town in Scotland to achieve Purple Flag status. Dunfermline has already achieved success in a number of initiatives focused on the night time economy, such as PubWatch, Best Bar None and Operation Safe Night. The scheme recognises excellence in the management of town and city centres at night.
