The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS - Stuart Gille­spie

Scot­land’s small­est royal burgh cel­e­brated the royal wed­ding in style on Sun­day.

More than 100 res­i­dents and friends came to­gether for a pic­nic in the park to en­joy the sun­shine and spend a com­mu­nity af­ter­noon to­gether.

There were car­ni­val rides, sack races and throw­ing wet sponges at a teacher from Kells School.

The pupils turned out in force to sup­port the day and to show off the beau­ti­ful wil­low and blossom ar­bour that they had cre­ated dur­ing re­cent out­door ed­u­ca­tion ses­sions.

There was a bar­be­cue, ice cream, Pimms do­nated by The Smithy Tea­rooms and strawberri­es do­nated by Tesco. There were stalls by Fabby Cakes, New Gal­loway Com­mu­nity Shop and LING.

The af­ter­noon was made pos­si­ble by the New Gal­loway Cel­e­bra­tory Events Com­mit­tee, a sub- com­mit­tee of LING – many thanks are due to all the vol­un­teers who put so much ef­fort into mak­ing it such an en­joy­able event.

Over­all, it was a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether and much fun was had by all.
