The works of two budding artists in Kinghorn have been chosen to publicise this year’s Kinghorn Children’s Gala.

The organising committee has been running its annual badge and poster artwork competitions for local school and nursery children over the past few months.

Children from nursery to P3 were asked to design a poster and programme cover using this year’s Gala parade theme of ‘cartoons,’ while P4-7 pupils were asked to design a badge to promote the event.

The overall winning poster will be used on the front cover of gala programmes.

The winning badges will be produced and distributed before and during Gala week, June 1-7.

This year’s winners were Mia Jane Moncur (P3) (Minnie Mouse) and Holly Taylor (P4) (Smurfette).

In the poster competition, overall second and third places went to Emma Paterson and Olivia Williamson (both P3) and in the badge competition, Shae Rashid (P5) was second with Yuill Petrie (P7), third.

Individual class winners were also picked.

They were : Nursery – Maisie Greig; P1 – Zak Bradley; P2 – Erin McIlravie; P3 – Emma Clunie; P4 – Cody MacDonald; P5 – Laurie Lindow; P6 – Kitty Begg; P7 – Caitlin Dickman.

Kinghorn Gala week begins on Sunday June 1, with the crowning of the 2014 gala queen, Caitlin Dickman, accompanied by her King, Daniel Hirst and attendants Emma Clunie and Sean Marshall. This is followed by a family fun day at Kinghorn Community Centre.

There are a variety of fun events for all ages on throughout the week, including “Robinson Crusoe” sessions, where youngsters can learn to build a shelter and cook on an open fire; pond guddles with the Ecology Centre; bowling sessions, a talent show, a quiz night, and a treasure hunt, also at the Ecology Centre.

The week’s activities round off on Saturday, June 7 with the parade on the theme of cartoons.

Entrants should gather in Park Place at 10.00 a.m. for a 10.30 a.m. start.

A children’s sports day will follow the end of the Gala Parade (weather permitting) on the school playing field, with a party night in the Community Centre at night from 7.00–11.00 p.m.

“We have a full programme planned and we hope everyone will give it their support,” said Andy Menzies, chairman of the Gala Committee.
