There was plenty of fun to be had in Greenlaw over the weekend when the village hosted its annual festival.
Megan Muir was at the centre of this year’s action as 2014 Greenlaw Maid and although her crowning on Saturday afternoon was a great occasion it was one highlight of many over the course of the event.
People’s grey matter was put to the test on Friday evening before a ceilidh ended the first evening of entertainment in traditional style.
It was then back to the village green on Saturday afternoon for the official opening of this year’s festival carried out by Leonard Harper Gow.
The green was buzzing on Saturday as people gathered to witness Megan’s crowning. She looked very regal as she took her place in front of the large crowd and was joined by a host of youngsters from the village for her big moment.
Senior attendants Rachel Denholm and Katy Watson, herald Sam Fisher and junior attendants Logan Carlin, Charlee Sherwood, Cody Redpath, Bethan Denholm, Jack Baxter, Taylor Brown, Aiden Bradd and Jennifer McLean for her crowning which was carried out by 2013 Maid Gwyneth Hume.
With the festival in full swing, there was plenty to keep people in high spirits with an inflatable laser quest proving extremely popular with both the young and the young at heart and a group of circus performers also capturing people’s attention.
A popular inclusion in Greenlaw Festival’ in recent years has been the Dodeccacathlon and this year was no different. Many of the tournament’s events including bowls, create a cake and human skittles had already taken place but with everything to play for going into festival weekend, the final event- Greenlaw’s Got Talent promised to be one to remember.
And it certainly was with the Campbell Squad emerging victorious, a win that saw them take first place overall and awarded the Wilma Moscrop Memorial Trophy.
