Halifax Courier - - Yourcourier - By Abi­gail Kel­lett

Mytholm­royd Gala re­turns to­mor­row and prom­ises to be a fun day out for all the fam­ily. The pro­ces­sion sets off at noon from Or­chard Park In­dus­trial Es­tate and goes through the vil­lage un­til it reaches Burn­ley Road Pri­mary School.

At 12:30pm the Gala will be of­fi­cially opened by Pam Sav­ille, a re­tired Burn­ley Road School head­teacher and has helped out with the Gala for many years.

This year’s Gala queen, Natasha Burn­side, will be trav­el­ling through the pro­ces­sion on an old 1940’s Mytholm­royd Moderna truck and will be crowned at 1pm.

En­try this year will be free thanks to Heb­den Royd Town Coun­cil who have given some fund­ing to­wards the event and the fair is start­ing on the Fri- day night for ex­tra fun.

There will be a va­ri­ety of per­for­mances, in­clud­ing lo­cal ma­gi­cian Si Hammah, rock­a­billy band Mad Jack and the Hat­ters and Gala Vice Chair­man Rick Wild, from the band the Over­lan­ders, will be singing.

Ge­orge Sumner, Gala Chair­man, said: “It’s nice to sup­port lo­cal peo­ple at these kinds of events.”

“A big thanks to Robin­wood for pro­vid­ing the wagon that will act as the stage on Satur­day.”

Chil­dren are be­ing en­cour­aged to wear their best fancy dress for the chance to win a £10 prize.

Face paint­ing and even head mas­sages will be on of­fer on the stalls as well as the chance to win a Mini Cooper.

If you would like to vol­un­teer to help out, please con­tact Ge­orge on 07969 231510.
