Queen of Galloway announced as Newton Stewart’s Megan

MEGAN Steele will be crowned this year’s Queen of Galloway as part of the 2012 Galloway Pageant procedings in July.

Newton Stewart lass Megan, a pupil at the Douglas Ewart High School, is related to the first ever Queen of Galloway Annie McKay, who took the throne in 1933 as her great grandmother was Annie’s sister.

The 15-year old drama enthusiast was chosen by judges Billy Welch, Lisa Anderson and Calum Troup last week along with maids Stephanie Pearce and Becky Dalrymple with Carla McCreadie as chief maid.

The annual pageant will take place throughout the week of 22-28 July.
