Queen Ailidh Rutherford and King Aidan Cullinane, along with royal attendants Marley Feenie and Oliver Thompson all enjoyed the crowning ceremony which was conducted by Kinghorn minister Jim Reid.

Community stalwart Mary Tulloch was presented with the John McLeod Shield in recognition of her outstanding service to Kinghorn Children’s Gala over many years.

The crowning ceremony was followed by a Family Fun Day which included performances from Mick Magic, inflatable fun and carnival games at Kinghorn Community Centre.

Throughout the week there was fun on the beach, with lots of seaside activities attended by over 70 children. The fun included a scavenger hunt, sandcastle competitions, beach rounders and a barbecue.
