Bo’ness has a new fair Queen - Louise Wilson was hailed by a bumper crowd gathered in the town’s Glebe Park earlier today (Friday).

Eleven o’clock - the appointed hour for the coronation – had come and gone before former teacher Liz Raeburn stepped forward and placed the crown on Deanburn Primary School’s ninth queen.

There was great applause from the spectators as the band struck up ‘‘Our Festal Day’’ confirming Queen Louise in her role for the next 12 months.

Following Fair Day protocol, schools, sports and youth organisations were presented to their new queen before the school presentees took the stage and the crowds drifted away from the Glebe Park to grab a vantage point from which to view the grand parade.
