10th Anniversary Gala Day

EventsPosted by liz Sun, June 15, 2014 17:23:52

Well, who would believe its our 10th anniversary of the Gala Day?

All the plans are now finalised.

As you can see from the poster on the front page, there will be a lot to see and do.

It will be opened by Paddy Tipping at 12pm, accompanied by the Boys Brigade band.

There will be a variety of live music all day. Lots of stalls, including home made cakes, jewellery, plants and preserves and refreshments.

The belly dancers - Dantes daughters - are always a great hit, they will be on twice during the afternoon.

English combat will be giving a couple of displays, these were a great attraction last year.

The every popular Crusader Bowmen will be there again if you fancy having a go at being Robin Hood.

We have a terrific dog show planned, entries will be from 12 o'clock and judging starts at 1pm. There is a notice below giving the classes. The prizes have been kindly donated by Kennelgate. You can get an entry form on the day or pick one up from Angela's Creations on Greenwood Road.

Dogs will also be able to have fun taking part in some agilty where they can again win prizes. This is being run by the dog trainers - Paws and Feet - who have classes on a regular basis at the Old Bowling green on the site.

This year there is a new attraction - a fancy hat competition open to all ages, male and female.

As always we will be having our fabulous tombola with a prize every time including a star prize which this year is - a pair of Sterling Silver earings with real emeralds, and of course our booby prize ha ha.

Come and read about the history of Colwick Woods and look at our wonderful display of photos and speak to our historian Ray who has a wealth of knowledge and loves talking about the subject. There will also be a guided walk around our beautiful woods if anyone wants to take part - wear suitable footwear.

Our membership stall will also be there, membership is only £2 a person or £5 for a family of 4.

We would love to see you there. Come along and join in the fun - bring lots of money!!!!
