THE Times is delighted to announce that there is a new sponsor for our Spot the Dog competition.

The competition has been one of the features of our pages over the past 25 years and after five years the Royal Hotel Dysart is being replaced as the sponsor of it by popular Cowdenbeath nitespot, Wee Jimmies Bar.

Said Times chief reporter Jim Stark: "We thank the Royal Hotel warmly for backing the area's favourite competition for the past five years.

"We are delighted that Wee Jimmies is taking over as sponsor of our £25 meal voucher prize."

Wee Jimmies' Gary Roy said: "We look forward to providing a top service for the winners of Spot."

Spot called in at Wee Jimmies, in High Street, to introduce himself to the staff and he is pictured with Kate and June and one of his fans, three year-old Emily.
