Singing for their supper …

Cupar’s Amateur Musical Society has teamed up with CuparNow, the town’s new Digital Improvement District, to help promote and sell the Society’s upcoming production.

We’re on YouTube

CuparNow is on YouTube. We are adding to the digital platforms we’re managing to best support businesses and organisations in the town. YouTube has some 1.9 billion users worldwide. In the UK, it is the second most popular social media channel with just over 37 million adults. The average viewing session is now 40 minutes – up 50% in just 12 months.

Fair minded …

CuparNow is ‘by business, for business‘ – but we know and appreciate none of the town’s businesses would thrive were it not for the incredible community spirit that abounds in the town.

Over a number of months, we have championed the work of Ruth McCabe and the the work she is delivering for Dementia Friendly Fife.

Since we started featuring the programme, we are delighted more businesses and organisations in Cupar have taken part and won their certificates. We hope this wee update helps to spread the word more …

Sowing the seeds of success ….

Anyone visiting Cupar this summer cannot have missed the stunning floral displays that bedeck Cupar’s public gardens, streets, windowsills, railings and more. Much of this work is down to the small army of volunteers who make up Cupar in Bloom. We caught up with them … to dig a little deeper …

Women’s Tour of Scotland to power through Cupar

CuparNow is top of the tree …

WOW! We are absolutely thrilled that the engaged audience we are growing – that’s you – is now the fastest growing of any improvement district across Scotland. CuparNow only launched at the end of 2018 and has already grown an engaged social media audience of more than 3,000. The speed of our audience development puts Cupar at the top of the table against every other improvement district – including those in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.
