THE Queen’s Court has been announced for this year’s Dunbar RNLI Lifeboat Day.

This year’s Lifeboat Queen is 14-year-old Beth Mackay, with attendants Mia Thomson, 11, and 12-year-old Anushka Demer.

Joining them will be herald Gavin Duffy, 10, and seven-year-old flower girl Mirren Ross.

The children all have a connection to the town’s volunteer lifeboat crew or fishing community, or are members of civic groups.

Beth is the daughter of Gordon Mackay, deputy second coxswain on the crew, while Mirren’s dad Alan is also on the crew.

Mia’s uncle and grandfather were both fishermen and another relative, David Kittrick, is a long-standing member of the crew, while Anushka’s father Quentin is the harbour master.

Gavin, meanwhile, is a member of the Boys’ Brigade.

The children take centre stage at the lifeboat fete on Saturday.

The parade along High Street begins from the Hillside Hotel at 1.15pm, before the crowning at 2pm.

Among the fun and games at the harbour are a chance to see the volunteer lifeboat crew in action and an opportunity to step aboard the all-weather lifeboat.

Entertainment is provided by the Strictly for the Lifeboats dancers and live music.

Vintage cars and Harley Davidson motorbikes are on show, there are stalls, a bar and for the children there’s a funfair, plus much more.
