The Bonnet Guild

The Bonnet Guild would like to extend their thanks to all the individuals, businesses and organisations that supported this years successful Gala Week. Gala Day was the definite jewel in the crown, with wall to wall sunshine on the Saturday and surely a record turnout to watch the fantastic float parade. Thank-you to all participants, helpers, stall holders, judges, advertisers, sponsors & the community for their invaluable support. Special thanks also to all of our newly recruited volunteer photographers who captured the spirit of the week so well  Richard Gass, Freya Macdonald , Valentina Peralta, Sandra Hunter and Adam Lyon.


Congratulations once again to this years court: Corsehill Queen Natalie Smith, 1st Maid Ellie Marinov, 2nd Maid Maria McCaffrey, Maids: Jenna Graham, Anna Sinclair, Rowan McClure and Kirsty Wall. First Courtier Matthew Lyon, 2nd Courtier Andrew Lancaster, Herald Max Burns, Sword Bearer Aadam Saafi, Crown Bearer Evan Dixon, Sceptre Bearer Morgan Cumming, Queens Highlander Ian Goldie, Pages Josh Woods and Jack Matheson. You were all beautifully turned out and performed your duties exceptionally well.


The Stewarton community really did come up trumps once again, supporting the extended range of events on offer and making for a very successful week.  Hope to see you next year when Gala Week will start on 9th June and run until 17th June, with the crowing of the Corsehill Queen and gala day on Saturday 16th June 2018.
