Newton Gala comes of age
Community turn out for 18th anniversary event
Newton Gala Day came of age when hundreds of residents came out to celebrate its 18th year.
And it proved to be one of the best yet, with stalls selling out and entertainment going down a storm.
Despite windy conditions, the committee of the Newton Village Residents Association had everything ready to go for the event, which was held on Saturday, June 24.
Association social convener, Jeanette Adam, said: “It was absolutely fabulous. The burger van sold out as did the tombola. Hardly anyone has anything left.
“The kids all had a great time as there was plenty for them to do.
“That was our 18th year. It’s constantly busy and each one is as good as the last.
“A great day was had by all. We are all shattered, but it was worth it.”
Looking forward, Jeanette said the committee relied on the support of the Newton community.
“We’ll be going the next 18 years so long as we get the help from the local residents,” she said.
“One thing we need is more helpers.”
