Newhaven Children’s Gala: what’s happening

(with thanks to Heather Suttie for sending in this information)

All welcome and no entrance fee!

The event starts with a parade of fishwives and fisherboys (from P1, P1/2, P6 & P7) which leaves Victoria Primary School at 1.15pm. We walk to the harbour to await the ‘Queen’ and her royal party, then parade back to Victoria Primary School where the crowning ceremony takes place.

Our VIP this year is Ben MacPherson, MSP. The parade will be led by piper Colin McNeil with the school Samba band joining in at the end with help from Pulse of the Place.  Newhaven Community Choir and Victoria Primary School children’s choir will sing a few songs. There will be stalls in the playground – food and activities, etc. Continue reading
