We had such a great time this year with lots of well supported events, which we really appreciated. Yesterday, despite typical Gala weather!! Was largely successful. Jez Avery put on a good show as always and the glamorous stilt walker, Katie Louise, Foxes Tales and FacePainter who did their best against the elements!
We would like to say a big thank you to all the bands who entertained us from 4pm til late and hopefully there was a genre to suit all tastes.
Of course all this could not have happened without the hard work from the volunteers and committee members. Thank you to the bar staff, "tuck shop mafia", gate helpers, those who helped last night on the door and with banding - we appreciate your help immensely. A huge thank you to the groundsmen - a lot of who are in their autumn years! They worked like troopers in all weather's to get the fencing and barriers in place, built the bar and staging, put out signs around the town, manage the toilets etc. Thank you to the committee who work tirelessly throughout the year sourcing and booking acts, organising fundraising events, often juggling work and family life, as well.
We will be holding our AGM in a few months and would love to welcome new members, who bring new ideas and energy to the committee. So please consider joining us, many hands make light work!
And of course, thank you to our community for coming along and supporting the event, it makes everything worthwhile.
