THE 2019 Cowdenbeath Civic Week Queen is Shannon Sharp, who was crowned on Wednesday night at a special ceremony held at the Old Cross Guns, in Bridge Street.

Shannon will be joined during the Civic Week events and of course Gala Day, by Princesses Freya Marshall and McKenzie Easton.

The royal party were piped in on the night by S1 Beath High School pupil Jamie Watt.

The young ladies are having a busy start to their reign with a series of visits to care homes in the town and Crossgates and other events being held this week.

Gala Day, this coming Saturday, will be a massive one for the girls who will be part of the leading group in the parade.
