THIS year's Addingham Gala Queen and her 'royal party' of attendants are preparing for some fun and games at the annual event next month.

Flower girls, knights and a maid of honour have been picked from among village children to accompany Gala Queen, Emily Mayo, on her official duties on Saturday July 12.

The theme of this year's parade is Fun and Games. The parade will set off down Main Street at 1pm on the day.
