THE 2018 Ardeer Gala turned out to be a brilliant day, with fun for young and old alike.

The Royal Party included Queen Jessica, Lady-in-Waiting Mirren and Flower Girl Emily, who were cheered on by the crowd.

The Page Boys, Robbie and Ethan did very well too.

It proved to be a fantastic day for everyone, with lots of stalls and activities for the kids including a slime workshop and glitter sand as well as fairground attractions.

There was a bouncy castle and soft play activities - and a licensed bar for the adults.
