Ceara Anderson from Auchnagatt and Kitty Burton from Arnage were crowned this year’s Gala Princesses.

Primary schools battled it out for first place at the football and netball tournaments, meanwhile the pets competition included an appearance from a pet snail.

Gala Committee Chair, Pat Anderson, told the Times: “We had a great week - Tuesday was our cookery demonstration from Lorna Ross - lovely 
food and great ‘craic’.

“Wednesday was the primary school Disco and the Gala Princesses were 
also chosen.

“Friday was a Family Bingo Night - great fun and very noisy and then Sunday was our Gala Day - what a great day!

“Good weather, great local support and a terrific turnout.

“We had a great craft tent, outside stalls, bouncy castles and very tasty teas and home bakes courtesy of 
Auchnagatt WRI.

“We would like to thank everyone who helped in so many ways - see you all next year at our 40th Gala!”
