Leilani is crowned Queen of Galloway 2014

The 2014 Galloway Pageant came to a conclusioon on Saturday with the crowning of the Queen of Galloway, Leilani Bartlett.

The sun shone between the clouds to allow events to take place outside, unlike last year’s unfortunate wash-out, and despite criticism over a lack of community help the day was a huge success.
