The Abbeyview community remembered loved ones in a special way by planting daffodils at the newly re-established Marie Curie Field of Hope.

In return for a donation, friends of the health and wellbeing group at the Tryst Centre gathered with the local community and planted a colourful tribute.

Fife Council's Community Learning and Development team were also on hand to judge a 'design a game' stencil competition which marks the start of the planned improvements to Abbeyview Park.

Children from Lynburn Primary School, Abbeyview Kids Club and St Ninians 7/11 club entered the competition.

The Field of Hope is an area of grass and daffodils blooming annually at the park and provides a special area to reflect for those who have had their own personal experience of terminal illness or, for some, to remember a loved one.

While friends of the community bought and planted bulbs, Marie Curie volunteers were also on hand to unveil a commemorative plaque.

Irene Duncan, fundraiser for Marie Curie's Dunfermline group, said: "We were delighted to go along and be a part of this fantastic event, and would like to say a big thank you to the organisers.

"As the local fundraising group, we like to support those in our community who are fundraising for Marie Curie so if you have a great fundraising idea, please do get in touch with us if you’d like our help."

The local community gathered for tea and cake at the Tryst Centre afterwards and £206 was raised for Marie Curie on the day.
