The Royal appointments for this year’s Leven Rose Queen ceremony have been made at Parkhill Primary School.

And taking to the throne in June is 12-year-old Lola Taylor, primary seven pupil at the Aitken Street school (front, centre).

She will be supported in her duties as Rose Queen 2015 by her pageboys, (pictured back row) John Wood, Nathan Doig, Caleb Cunningham, and her four attendants (pictured front) Calla Urquhart, Amy Stewart, Melissa Small and Lucy Walker.

The Rose Queen ceremony, a well-loved summer event in Leven for many, many years, will be back at Carberry House on Saturday, June 13.

The finishing touches are just being made to the plans, which sees the car treasure hunt back for Civic Week, and the popular sandcastle competition returning from last year.

Leven’s very own pandas, Rosie and Queenie will be there on the day, while everyone’s favourite characters, Mickey and Minnie, are back too, along with some friends from Sesame Street!

Linda Allardyce, from the Civic Week Committee, said: “We haven’t had the car treasture hunt for a couple of years, and that used to be popular, so we’re hoping to bring it back on the Sunday.

“The Rose Queen ceremony is a big thing in Leven – everyone has got some sort of memory of it.”

Look out for Civic Week volunteers in their red jackets from May 18, as they will be going round the doors collecting funds for the annual celebrations.
