WELCOME TO GALA 2018
Arrangements for Gala 2018 were going to plan until we were informed of the Flood Alleviation Scheme. Like all other groups in the village we were concerned about how it would impact on our event. Our concerns were allayed when we were assured by LCC that there would access to Wilkinson Drive on Gala Day. Further reports from the Chair of the village hall committee updated us with progress from the weekly meetings held with the contractors. The day before the gala promises were made to remove some steel plates from the entrance to the field, fill the mudded area in with pebbles/stones and fence off the trench. None of this work was undertaken and when we attempted to drive to the hall on Friday evening to our horror we discovered that the road from the Market Rasen end was completely closed off, when we approached from Manor Drive there appeared to be more blocks and cones than ever and it did look as though there was no way through to Wilkinson Drive. This confusion clearly impacted on the footfall which was less than previous years. Despite the upheaval people did come along and support the Gala, there wasn’t a crumb left on the cake stall, the refreshments and BBQ were well attended. The games were popular particularly the new ones, the Shuffleboard, Spin the Wheel and the Coconut Shy. All these games can be used by the local community, note BYOC (buy your own coconuts). The children enjoyed the bouncy castle, the slide and the Freebound Course. Amazingly the children did well in their races considering the lanes were marked out like dogs hind legs! Proud dog owners put their pooches through their paces in the agility course and Fun Dog Show. Lincoln Ukulele Club were so jolly with their lively music and singing. Brian Hellyer was very entertaining with his amazing magic tricks, the children were spellbound during the magic show – shame he couldn’t magic the road works away. A big thank you to all the volunteers for their hard work, thanks to retailers for supporting us either with raffle prizes or coming to the Gala. Thank you to Middle Rasen Community Fund, Middle Rasen Parish Council, Tesco Cash for Bags and the Co-op for their support. Finally, thank you to the local community for their continued support.
