A QUEEN has been selected for Dunbar’s Civic Week celebrations.

The annual event, which runs from June 10 to 18, celebrates the richness of the community and provides opportunities for people to come together and have some fun.

Volunteers have been busy working behind the scenes to pull together a programme for the event.

A spokesperson for the group thanked everyone for their continued support.

She said: “The programme will be printed and out in letterboxes soon.

“We are organising some exciting events which we hope the community will enjoy, including a summer sounds silent disco at Lauderdale Park, Nerf wars, big bairns little bairns family disco, comedy night with former Scottish comedian of the year Bruce Fummey headlining the show supported by MC Vladimir McTavish, ceilidh capers and an evening of ’90s hits from one of the UK’s leading ’90s tribute bands, supported by Jasmin Jet Music, an independent, award-winning singer/songwriter, and Dunbar’s very own band Room 27.”

The Royal Court, of children living in the town, was selected recently.

Makayla Blyth has been named Civic Week Queen and will be joined by Cameron Beckett as queen consort.

Ellen Buchanan (attendant), Alaska Allan (attendant), Giosué Cassino (page boy), Lillie Gullan (flower girl), Rosie Lindsay (flower girl) and Max Morrison (page boy) are also included in the court.

The spokesperson added they were always on the lookout for more volunteers.

They said: “The Civic Week team comprising of Sanchita Patjoshi (chair), Eileen Moore, Gayle Bell, Gemma Fraser, Cate Shields, Bev Anderson, Rebecca Knipe and Alasdair Swan (treasurer) are helping to bring together and promote events and activities on behalf of community groups and organisations.

“We’re always seeking volunteers so if you’re interested in joining us, we’d love to hear from you.”
