Kirkheaton Scouts & Guides & Community Gala 2014

balloonsThe Gala this year will take place on the Village Green at Fields Rise on Sunday 22 June. Besides the regular favourites – Gala Queen and Attendants, Procession, Marching Band, Majorettes, Café, Rockin Ronnie’s Inflatables, Arena demonstrations and games, and a variety of stalls, we will also be inviting Punch and Judy as it proved very popular last year.

We are hoping that more organisations and local businesses will take up the challenge and have their own float in the Parade – perhaps themed to suite their business/interest.

Stalls will be available to hire and we will be giving ‘locals’ the first option.

We need lots of help, both before, during and after the event so we are asking our community to put themselves forward as Volunteers – let’s see some of that old-fashioned ‘Community Spirit’!  There are lots of ways you can help us.  These are just a few:  transporting equipment; marshalling; clearing the site before and after the event; baking, washing up and serving; setting up marquees; selling programmes. Or you could support us by sponsoring the event, donating a Raffle Prize or buying an advertisement in the Programme.  Why not buy a space to give a special greeting to someone – Birthday, Anniversary or Qualification success? With advertisements from £15 this must be the cheapest form of advertising around.

If you are not able to do any of the above why not just come along on the day and help to make this year’s Gala another fabulous success!
