Sun shines for Isle Gala

The community turned out in force to support last Saturday’s Isle of Whithorn Gala.

Those taking part in the greasy pole, swimming race, Water Walkers and raft race were all thankful for the glorious weather which brought the summer season to an end, and there was no shortage of fancy dress entries either.

The parade made it's way through the Isle headed by Piper Alan Ferry. SGGY 020914 9

Last year’s queen, Leah Pickthall crowned this year’s Isle Queen, Georgie Scoular in front a locals and visitors, all of whom reported a successful day all round.

Organisers are now looking towards next year and thanked everyone for the support and participation.
