We love involving the community as much as possible, which is why we try to have such a varied week of events and over the last few years tried to incorporate more and more for children.
This year is the first year we are introducing a Junior Hunter and Lass after taking on board a suggestion by a helpful member of the public.
Each year a different local primary school will make the selection from Primary Six pupils, following a nomination process similar to the Hunter and Lass.
This year our Junior Hunter is Finlay McLean and Junior Hunter’s Lass is Sophie Lee, both from Cuiken Primary School. Both are very excited and looking forward to getting involved.
Junior Hunter – Finlay McLean
“When my name was pulled out of the hat I was very excited and when Sophie was chosen as Lass I was very happy for her. I can’t wait to be in the parade. The feeling of being the first is very nice because we will go down in history.”
Junior Hunter’s Lass – Sophie Lee
“When I was chosen as the Junior Lass I was really surprised and speechless. I am very happy and glad Finlay is the Junior Hunter. I am quite shocked that we are the first ones!”
