Motion text

That this House congratulates Alexa Bianconcini from Glenrothes, Lucy Funnell from Coaltown of Balgonie, Murron Putka from Leven, Louise Barton from Cairneyhill, Kirsten Stewart from Leven and Serena Bianconcini from Glenrothes on their fantastic success at the Highland Dancing Scottish Area finals which were recently held in Oban; highlights that the competitors were individually selected during championships and events held in 2023 and the group competed against 17 teams from areas throughout Scotland; notes that this event is the only event in the Highland Dancing calendar that allows competitors to dance as a troop rather than solo in a solo sport; commends the troop on their wonderful win which marks the first time since the competition began 31 years ago that Fife has picked up the top spot despite being a regular qualifier; and wishes the group and everyone at the Kingdom of Fife Highland Dance Festivals all the best for the future.
