Colbie-Kate Ross has been announced as Eyemouth Herring Queen for 2017.

A panel of townspeople had the difficult job of choosing a girl from the thirrd year at Eyemouth High School to become the 73rd to wear the crown. The selection process is carried out by a cross section of representatives from groups in the town.

The Herring Queen committee says it is delighted by the choice the panel has made and looks forward to planning the festival, which will start with Colbie-Kate’s crowning by Megan Melvin, the 2016 Eyemouth Herring Queen, on July 22.
