This year’s Eyemouth Herring Queen Festival was another successful week full of events and activities.

Children of all ages enjoyed activities such as Tuesday’s circus workshop, pizza making with Harbour Road’s Giacopazzi’s and the kids mini golf on Thursday.

They also got stuck into some family fun along with parents and grandparents at Wednesday night’s games of Deal or No Deal, Saturday’s beach games and of course the torch-lit pyjama parade later that evening.

Unfortunately the weather resulted in the first highlight of the week as the arrival of the herring queen was pushed back to last Saturday and that day’s sandcastle competition had to be cancelled.

It also meant that the crowning ceremony moved venue to the parish church and as the rain continued intermittently throughout the week, Wednesday’s pet show was did not go ahead.

Despite this, the town showed its full support at events.
