Lord Provost

Top teamwork to celebrate Scottish Cup glory

It was an honour and a privilege to host a special reception for the victorious Hibs players and club representatives on Sunday – something 33 previous Lord Provosts haven’t been able to do!

Hibs Scottish Cup win
For the jubilant crowds who lined the streets to celebrate Hibs’ Scottish Cup glory, it was a day that will live long in the memory.

Events like this take considerable planning and I want to pay particular tribute to all the Council staff who put in long hours to ensure the celebrations were a success. From public safety officers managing the parade itself to cleansing staff clearing up after the crowds had dispersed, it was a terrific team effort.

Edinburgh not only has the Scottish Cup once again; we’ve also reinforced our much-envied reputation for staging excellent public events. Well done to everyone involved.
