BLACKWOOD and Kirkmuirhill locals turned out in their hundreds to witness the crowning of this year’s Gala Queen Robyn Edwards.
Queen Robyn was crowned in front of family and friends at Lochanbank Park by her predecessor Amy Reid.
The procession was a riot of colour with old favourites like Spiderman, Batman, Iron Man and Beauty and the Beast mixing with minions, cupcakes and colourful clowns as young and old took the opportunity to take part in a fantastic community event.
And freelance photographer Peter Beggs was on hand to capture all the action for the Gazette, featured here in our slideshow created for your viewing pleasure by Gazette editor Julie Currie.
This week’s Carluke and Lanark Gazette also features more gala news – so make sure you pick up a copy, if you haven’t already done so!
