MY PASSION FOR DUNFERMLINE
Dunfermline is a brilliant place to live, work and visit. Our rich West Fife history draws tourists from across the world to discover the home of kings and queens at Dunfermline Abbey, along with the awe-inspiring Forth Bridge – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We are crammed with world-leading big businesses and creative small firms that make for a vibrant West Fife economy. Our community is one we can be proud of. I am striving to work with the many talented West Fifers to ensure we improve across education, economy, health and tourism – and make our home the best it can be.
