Our Annual Mixed Triples Gala – Bank Holiday Monday 30th August
We are pleased to announce that our Annual Mixed Triples Gala will be held this year on Bank Holiday Monday August 30th. We have been forced to make some changes to this year catering arrangements, but don’t think that this should diminish the appeal of our Gala!
This event has proved very popular in recent years and, as entries are on a first come, first served basis, we encourage you to get your entries in as quickly as possible. A printable form can be downloaded from the foot of our Annual Gala page; this should then be completed and returned to the Gala Organiser, Mrs Lesley Drake, at the address given on the form.
We look forward to receiving your entries and being able to have our usual fun filled and friendly competitive day.
