Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Will Hen­shaw

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.”
