The results are in! - Gazette Issue 5 - 1424 S.R.

Last night, the results of the election of Shire May Queen and King were announced by Nannie at the coronation party in Brightdown.
This year's royal couple will be:

Queen Lina and King P̶o̶ .. Simbo!!

Congratulations to you both! May you rule wisely and without a vengeance. One thing's for sure: taxes on biscuits, pies and yellow dye will go up! On the other hand: taxes and fines will preferably be paid in biscuits and/or pies. The ruling on drum permits has not been made clear yet, but this seems to be a bounder matter.

Our new King treated us to a couple of poems, as was more or less expected of him. Hobbit Heart provided party music to dance to and their kinship Shire Rose hosted the party at their grounds. They also celebrated their seventh founding day. That is Shire Rose AND Hobbit Heart. Congratulations!
