Village ready for Gala Week

Preparations are under way for the annual Luthermuir Gala, which begins on Monday (June 3) and runs the whole week until Gala Day next Sunday (June 9.)

On the main day the Gala will open with a Heroes and Villains Fancy Dress competition for all ages, with points awarded for originality – the more homemade the costume, the better!

A fun dog show will run throughout the afternoon, with classes including ‘Handsomest Hound,’ ‘Prettiest Bitch,’ ‘Golden Oldie,’ ‘Best Child Handler’ and the egg and spoon. The organisers are very pleased to welcome back the Eileen Lindsay Dancers this year, who will give two performances during the afternoon. A variety of stalls including some local craft producers will be in the park – anyone wishing to bring a stall can contact Susan on 01674 840260.

There are lots more activities planned too, so don’t miss out!
