The Eyemouth Herring Queen committee is appealing to any past Herring Queens to please get in touch with their contact details as they aim to make next year’s event one to remember.

They are also keen for any members of the public who have cine, video or DVD footage of past queens to make contact with any Herring Queen committee members.

2014 marks the 70th crowning and the committee are hoping to produce a DVD with coverage of every year to commemorate the occasion.

Anyone wanting to assist should contact Elaine Peakman, 13 Haymons Cove, Eyemouth TD14 5EG; phone 01890750441 or contact the committee on their facebook page or email eyemouthherringqueen@hotmail.co.uk.

This year’s festival was one of the biggest to date with 2013 Queen Devon McNab leading Eyemouth through a week long programme of events which included the return of a torchlight procession.
