Gearing up for a street party to rock the Burgh
All set for the festivities
People will flock to Rutherglen Main Street on Saturday for the annual Landemer Day celebrations.
The event will officially open with the crowning of this year’s Landemer Queen, Stonelaw High School pupil Katie Whiteside (12).
She will replace dowager Queen Lucy Carr.
The new Queen will be ably assisted by her ladies in waiting, who this year will be Charlotte Fulton and Rowan Douglas from Stonelaw High School, Lily Crichton and Leona Stewart from Cathkin High School, Neve Lavery and Bronwyn Weir from Trinity High School and Erin McLaughlin and Lucy Emslie from Rutherglen High School.
As ever, the Landemer Committee have worked tirelessly organising the event, and there will be a fantastic variety of entertainment, fun and games for the community to enjoy.
The Queen, her attendants, the sponsors and guests will retire at 12.20pm to the Masonic Hall in Melrose Avenue for a tasty lunch and will return to the Main Street afterwards.
There is a dance party for the Queen, attendants and guests from 7.30pm until 11.30pm in the Masonic Hall on Melrose Avenue, after which the Landemer Committee members will head home happy but ready for a welcome rest.
Landemer Committee secretary Ian Duncan is looking forward to the big and is hoping the weather is kind and that everyone enjoys themselves.
He said: “Everyone at the committee has worked exceedingly hard.
“We have lots of entertainment for people to enjoy and we just hope it stays dry!
“As ever, there are a lot of stalls for people to come and view, so we encourage as many people as possible to come along.”
