Dear Friends of Bo’ness,
As this year’s Fair Queen, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I am now halfway through my reign, and thus far, 2018 has been a fantastic year for me and it still remains a tremendous honour to have been chosen as this marvellous town’s Queen.
There are obviously a great many people I owe a huge debt of appreciation to, particularly my parents, family and close friends.
Thank you also to Chairman, Mr. Scott McBride and the Fair Committee for all their help leading up to the Fair Day and on the wonderful day itself. Also Mrs Maria Ford who has been great since she was chosen to crown me:
A special big thank you to everyone at Bo’ness St Mary’s Primary School, not forgetting all the other primary schools who participated in my special day; to all the teachers, helpers, proud parents & Guardians, who year after year work so hard behind the scenes.
To family and friends for their incredible effort involved in producing the many wonderful arches and house frontages, without them our Fair wouldn’t be the unique and innovative spectacle it has been these past 110 years.
The Fair is a heart warming reminder to us all, of the long summer evenings and the enviable community spirit on these cold wintry nights. I hope that everyone is excited in the lead up to Christmas, as the children of Bo’ness are during the week before the Fair.
So on that note, I would like to wish the lovely people of Bo’ness and their many absent friends a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year.
Peace & Goodwill
