Following the AGM  a healthy discussion took place  regarding GALA 2011 . This led to discussion regarding  fundraising in the village. It was evident that most organisations are seeking  funding and it is becoming ever more difficult particularly for those who have buildings to maintain ie. The Hall and the Pavilion.   Everyone agreed that Gala week was good for the village , the community came together and had a good time and raised money for  the hall.

The organising of this event is immense and trying to muster help on the day is difficult.  The committee was very grateful to those who have supplied tractors trailers etc over many years and the willing hands who do help on the day.

Gala Committee is a sub committee of Williamson Hall Management Committee .

It was suggested that other organisations should get a share of Gala profits , those organisations who provide stalls keep their profit, various suggestions on this theme were aired.

The Tower singers, have organised the Walking Treasure Hunt and car Treasure Hunt,  Bowling club  Bowling event and playgroup the Disco.  And they are happy to continue.

Gala day is a different matter. After a lengthy discussion, no one present was willing to organise  and take responsibility for GALA day .It was decided that there would not be a GALA Day in 2011.

Fundraising will be discussed at the next Williamson Hall Meeting on Monday 28th March at 7 30pm at the Williamson Hall.


The fun starts at 2pm on Saturday 4th June at Williamson Hall. The Fancy Dress competition for individuals, families and groups will be judged at 2.30pm.

 We would welcome donations for the stalls of Home Baking, Bottles, Raffle Prizes and Books .Please bring any donations to the Hall on 4th June from 11am.  

All proceeds from the day are for the up- keep of the Williamson Hall .

 Parking at the hall is VERY RESTRICTED, so from 1.30pm, we would appreciate if you could leave your car at home or use the Car Park in village or the School Car park which is available on Saturday.

We look forward to enjoying the fun on the day and hopefully the sunshine too!!
