ABERDOUR has been named coastal village of the year at the 2012 Beautiful Fife awards.
The communities were judged during late July and were assessed on horticultural achievement, environmental responsibility and community involvement.
Fifty-two communities participated in this year's campaign and each were awarded a certificate by Provost Jim Leishman.
West Fife winners were: Gold Award - Aberdour; Silver Gilt - Cairneyhill, Crossgates, Limekilns, Low Valleyfield; Silver - Charlestown, Dalgety Bay, Inverkeithing, Kincardine, Torryburn; Bronze - Hillend.
Provost Leishman commented, "Fife is the real winner when our communities pull together to improve their local environments. I am sure all the success will inspire many more communities to get involved."
Fife Council Parks and Community Events Officer Keith Jackson said, "I am always impressed by how the communities in Fife rally to this campaign and really make it their own. Their enthusiasm and efforts is appreciated by the people of Fife and hopefully many more will be encouraged to take part next year."
