The committee would like to thank all the volunteers who helped during the week and on the gala day itself without these people’s efforts we would never have managed to achieve such a successful event. The Gala Day AGM will be held in St. Bride’s Centre on Wednesday 29th August and anyone who would like to help to organise next year’s event should come along at 7pm.
A purse was found in the park on Saturday please contact Diane Taylor on 851835.
