THE girl who will be crowned Biggar Fleming Queen 2015 in June is Katie Child, chosen along with court members at Biggar Primary School this week.

Also in the court are Maids of Honour: Catriona Haughey and Joanna Dale; Ladies-in-Waiting: Emma Carruthers, Katy Muir, Madelyn Reid and Eilidh McAllan; and Pages: Stewart McLeod and Harris Watson.

Court members are: Greig Callen, Tom Carvel, Callum Craig, Michael Glen, Murray Hamilton, Adam Lacey, Finlay Laing, Michael Maxfield, Lewis McShane, Fraser Simpson and Andrew Williamson.

Katie will be crowned by Sandra Bolton, possibly as a thank you for all her work with the gala committee over the years.

Sandra, who worked for 36 years in the Kello Hospital as a nursing assistant, is looking forward to the big day.

“I am a bit apprehensive, but it will be lovely,” she said. “It is a great honour.”

Her partner Will Pearson, and sons Dawn, David and Steven will no doubt be cheering her on.
