A PALACE fit for a queen is back open again in the Kingdom.

The Palace Cafe in Rosyth is serving customers again with new measures in place to keep people safe.

Dunfermline and West Fife MP Douglas Chapman and Rosyth councillor Sharon Green-Wilson both stopped by for a cuppa recently in a show of support to the business on Queensferry Road.

The visit was all part of a bid to encourage families in the area to support local businesses and help kick-start the economy again.

Mr Chapman said: “The past few months have been extremely difficult for a number of businesses, not just across West Fife, but Scotland and it was a good feeling to walk in the front doors of the Palace Café to enjoy a cuppa and I look forward to visiting many other cafes across Dunfermline and West Fife.

“Despite the Scottish Government moving us into Phase 3 of lifting restrictions, I must remind everyone that it doesn’t mean the virus has been fully suppressed so I would urge everyone to respect the rules that are in place, like wearing a face-covering in shops and enclosed spaces.

“I would also ask that customers respect the wishes of staff who are there to make sure you can enjoy yourself and stay safe."

Also commenting, Councillor Green-Wilson said: “Like many locals, I am delighted to see the cafe open again and to see all the new track and trace and social distancing measures in place.

“George and Shirley have made a really great job of sprucing up the interior too and I look forward to enjoying my regular cuppa again."
