Blantyre Royals 2017

Gala Winners 2017Its that time of year again! I LOVE being part of organising Blantyre’s Gala Weekend and this year is no exception. I can reveal the SIX lucky Blantyre children who will be crowned as “Blantyre Royalty” at this years forthcoming Gala Day.

Congratulations go to:

Blantyre Gala Queen 2017: Bethany McBride (7)
Blantyre Gala King 2017: Jon – Pol Hull (10)

and also to:

Lord Blantyre 2017: Zac Boyd (8)
Lady Blantyre 2017: Daisy Geddes (8)
Prince of Blantyre 2017: Lochlan Greenhill (9)
Princess of Blantyre 2017: Orlagh Smith (9)

The six children aged between 7 and 10 were randomly chosen by the Committee Board members and represent a good mix of all local Primary Schools in Blantyre.

With a day of pampering, being looked after, goodies and a crowning on stage in front of thousands of Blantyre people, these lucky children are in for a special treat. It’ll be a day they remember for the rest of their lives! We’re sure you’ll join us in congratulating all the winners and sincere thanks go out also to everybody who entered.

The Gala takes place on Sunday 11th June from midday at David Livingstone Centre.

  1. Wilma and her parents lived next door to my sister Alice. Perfect neighbours and a lovely family. I remember Wilma from Calder Street school.
    Chatted with her parents a few times over the fence on some of my trips. 1982 when I was back for the Junior Cup final, which of course, the ‘VICS won! A bit more than a chat, more like a blether!

  2. I am in touch with Hughina now and again via e mail, I met up with Hughina a few years ago for lunch at the Avonbridge in Hamilton during one of my trips. A lovely lady.
    She has 2 sons who share my passion in football.
