It’s go for gala day

Ayrshire Post - - Bob Shields -

Troon Gala has been fixed for Satur­day, June 23 af­ter a squab­ble over stall hire has been fixed.

The date clashes with The Holy Fair with Armed Forces Day and Pipes in the Park on Ayr’s Low Green.

And it was thought all the coun­cil’s stock of 80 stalls were needed.

Now it’s been con­firmed 25 stalls will be avail­able and set up in Troon.

The tab will be picked up by South Ayr­shire Coun­cil af­ter the bud­get just set scrapped the charge for com­mu­nity galas.

Last Tues­day night Troon Com­mu­nity Coun­cil chair­man He­len Duff said the Holy Fair got top pri­or­ity from South Ayr­shire and was un­for­tu­nately tak­ing place on the same date.

Coun­cil­lor Phil Sax­ton re­vealed a let­ter from de­part­ing coun­cil di­rec­tor Les­ley Bloomer said the dates clashed due to ac­cess­ing na­tional fund­ing and the avail­abil­ity of massed pipes.
