Crail Community Council
The Royal Burgh of Crail and district Community Council is an elected body created to ascertain, co-ordinate and express to local and public authorities the views of the Crail community. Community Councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland, they bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent. A particular role of the Council is to encourage community participation and a sense of community spirit.

Crail In Bloom
'Crail in Bloom' plant and maintain the flower tubs and barrier baskets on Marketgate, St Andrews Road and the High Street. We have also started to plant an orchard in the field between Kirk Wynd and Roome Bay Avenue. We are entirely a volunteer organisation and raise funds for the plants, compost, new tubs and so on by holding regular coffee mornings, a plant sale and many generous donations. The tubs are watered and dead headed throughout the season by volunteers and we also plant for a spring display of violas and bulbs. In 2015, we were very proud to have been awarded a Gold certificate in the Beautiful Fife competition.
