Auditions for the 'New Faces' show took place recently, with the high calibre of acts making it difficult for the judges to whittle the numbers down.

Lynda Jones, one of the show organisers, said: "We have a good mix for the show this year and hope as always the community will turn out to support the youngsters.

"The show will be in Kilsyth Academy on both nights this year so watch the local press for information on how to get tickets."

The closing date for the Poetry and Art competition is June 3. Entries can be submitted at Kilsyth Library.

This year's theme is "Fashion Through the Ages" and entrants must write which school and class they belong to on the back of their poem or painting. On closing Saturday, several competitions are being organised such as 'Design Your Own Outfit' and a fancy dress event.

Registration will take place at 1.30pm on the day, so get designing and you can be part of the fashion show.

There are still spaces left for stalls and floats, which can be booked by contacting Jean Jones on 01236 822960, or Gordon Anderson on 01236 825278, or e-mailing [email protected]

Last but not least, Amy Jarvie and Jean Jonesare still on the look out for Civic Week outfits for the fashion show on June 19.

If you still have your dress and would allow it to be used in the fashion show contact Jean. Organisers would be pleased to hear from anyone who can help out during the Civic Week celebrations.
