KINGHORN Children’s Gala week gets underway on June 2 with the crowning of Gala Queen, Jordyn Ferguson, and her Royal party.

This year’s event runs until June 8, with the parade, on the theme ‘movies and films’ taking place on the Saturday morning, followed by a sports event and gala party at night.

The recent door-to-door collection raised nearly £1500 for funds and a number of events are being funded from a successful application by the Ecology Centre to Scottish National Heritage’s ‘Year of Natural Scotland.’

The annual children’s badminton and five-a-side competitions take place on May 25.

There will also be special Robinson Crusoe children’s survival courses taking place at the Harbour beach on June 3 -4 including learning how to build a shelter and cooking on an open fire.

Tickets can be booked at the community centre on June 1 from 2-3.00 p.m.

Programmes will be available from the school, with additional copies at the community centre and local shops. Any ammendments to scheduled events will be posted on local notice boards.

Meanwhile a school competition to design the poster and badge which will be used to promote the Kinghorn Children’s Gala have been chosen.

The winning poster design, featuring a giant peach, was drawn by Archie Campbell from P2 at Kinghorn Primary. His design was based on the film James and the Giant Peach.

The winner in the badge competition was Ellen Taylor of P6 who came up with the idea of featuring a box of popcorn, to maintain the movies theme of the Gala Day procession.
