Dunbar Lifeboat:: "Dayna Bisset was today crowned Lifeboat Queen for our Virtual Fete 2020. There wasn’t a parade or the usual festivities at the harbour, but it was still a big moment for Dayna, 14, and her family. Performing the honour was Dayna’s gran, Margaret, and her three-year-old cousin Neeva."

Dayna said: “Thank you to the lifeboat crew. It’s been a difficult year for everyone but I would like to say “thank you” for choosing me to be Dunbar’s Lifeboat Queen. It’s a proud day for all our family.”

Dunbar Lifeboat: "Everyone connected to Dunbar Lifeboat Station is very grateful to Dayna for continuing a lifeboat queen tradition that stretches back to 1963. She was joined at a specially-staged ceremony at the Battery by her family, including dad Stuart and uncle James – who previously served on the crew. The crowning of our queen is the culmination of two weeks of competitions we have been running to raise funds for our Lifeboat Station."

Fundraising Chair Veronica Davies said: “We’ve been delighted with the response. We couldn’t have a Lifeboat Fete – virtual or otherwise – without a queen and it was important to maintain the tradition of the crowning ceremony. Although Dayna has not been able to enjoy all the usual fun of the fete we’ll look to involving her in next year’s event.”
