Sun helps brighten a grand day for Tegan’s coronation

After a couple of dicey years the rain and clouds knew better than to darken Grangemouth’s door on Children’s Day in 2016.

Not only did Queen Tegan Berry enjoy a warm and sunny coronation in Zetland Park last Saturday afternoon, but her retinue, local youngsters and their family and friends also had a great day out without having to bother if they brought their umbrellas.
