All of the plans in place for Kennoway Civic Week and Carnival, which kicks off this Friday - now all the organisers are hoping for is some sunshine to go with it!

The investiture of the Kennoway lad and lass, Ryan Ndogaj and Danielle Gault, will mark the beginning of the civic celebrations, which is followed this Sunday by the kirkin’ of the lad and lass at St Kenneth’s Church.

A whole week of events has then been arranged to celebrate the annual civic week, starting on Monday, June 1.

Locals are invited to take part in the car treasure hunt which leaves from the carpark situated behind the British Legion, before heading back there for a stovies supper.

On Tuesday, the domino tournament once again takes place at the Sunbeam, while on Wednesday, there will be a tea bingo at St Kenneth’s Church.

On Thursday, there’s a tea dance at Kennoway Primary School, which is always very well attended, while in the evening there is a quiz at Kennoway Bowling Club.

On Friday, the annual pool competition takes place at the Swan Hotel - and there is some light relief on Saturday, before the carnival kicks off on Sunday, June 7.

The parade will leave Kennoway Primary School at 12.30 p.m., led by the lad and lass and Methihill Pipe Band and accompanied by Methil Sea Cadets.

The official opening takes place at Cotlands Park at 12.45p.m. with a whole afternoon of entertainment, including a fancy dress competition, cobbler the clown, a bonny babes competition, races for the kids, highland dancers, philipino dancers, a magician and a talent showcase to end the day.

Ruby Winton from the committee said: “Last year was lovely, so we’ll be hoping for another good year. May has been quite horrible so we’re hoping for a glorious June!”
