THE historic Rossend Castle in Burntisland was the venue for the unveiling of this year’s first ever Summer King and the 2013 Summer Queen.
A special reception was held at the castle recently to welcome the new king, Caine Yeardley (11), and the new summer queen, Adele Shaw (11). They were also joined by their attendants and last year’s queen, Louise Lindsay.
The guest of honour was Jim Leishman, Provost of Fife. He gave an opening speech to welcome the invited guests and gave thanks to the local community and this year’s Burntisland Civic Week sponsors, which include Archway Metals and Business Gateway Fife. They have given their support to the forthcoming Civic Week - launching on June 14.
The weekong programme of comedy, music and entertainment to suit children and adults alike. The theme for this year is ‘the natural world’ and it is anticipated the local children will put a lot of imagination into this year’s costume procession on Saturday, June 15 in the historic Burntisland Parish Church.
This will follow the crowning of the New King and queen. Morna Beuzeval, chairman of the Civic Week committee, gave special thanks to Mike Rolland and the Hurd Rolland Partnership for kindly opening Rossend Castle for last week’s reception. She said: “This is the first time we have had a VIP reception and this year we have something to shout about. We work tirelessly to bring this weekly event to the people of Burntisland and surrounding communities - we would like to thank everyone for their support.”
