Loanhead Primary pupil Mhairi Ross almost burst into tears when she discovered she was to be crowned this year’s Gala Queen.
Mhairi (11) will be joined by classmate Robbie Neave (11), who will be the Herald.
The crowning lady will be Jennifer Bernard, who has been a teacher at Loanhead nursery for 36 years.
When Mhairi opened the gala letter mum Karen said: “There were tears in her eye. It was a moment I’ll never forget. It was overwhelming for us as parents.”
