Leadhills Gala Day 2013 Slideshow

THERE’S nothing ‘leaden’ about how folk in Leadhills go about celebrating their annual gala day and the 2013 event was no exception.

Gala Queen Rebecca Rees was crowned by last year’s leading lady Nicola Paul in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

The theme of this year’s event was Pirates and Dragons so matelots and monsters abounded in the procession to the village football field where the crowning took place.

All of the action on the day was captured by Gazette photographer Lindsay Addison and his pictures are featured here in our slideshow.
