Cupar’s Warm Winter Welcome

We’ve teamed up with a range of Cupar’s community groups to create this – a menu of places that are open and welcoming this winter … places where the heating is on to provide a cosy space for all and where you’ll find a smiling, friendly face.

The same is being shared through a Christmas card that we’re printing and delivering with the help of engaged community groups in the hope that every one of the town’s 4,000 homes will receive a card in the countdown to Christmas.

Community at Heart …

In the conversations we have had with community groups, we are aware that Cupar and its catchment is home to many vulnerable folk who need support. The elderly, lonely, disabled, those affected by mental health issues, the bereaved, anxious, the hungry, those within the criminal justice system … it is quite a list. We hope this Blog helps to provide useful information that can be used by those in need of support – either directly or by those assisting them, be they family, friends, colleagues or carers. If you have any information you’d like us to consider adding to this page, please do so by emailing via this link – sharing as much relevant information as possible. Thank you.

The above lists community facilities that are open this winter. The town has more than 40 businesses and organisations providing food & drink – and you can discover more on these by clicking on the image below to access our categorised listings …

All that CuparNow delivers is with a ‘business first’ mantra as it is the businesses contributing to our work that enable our support of them and our wider community.

Through this last year, we have been happy to support a whole host of community groups, events and initiatives and are very thankful to those organisations who have provided testimonials recognising the support CuparNow has been able to provide. You can see these by following this link.
