Owing to lots of other events taking place in July each year the Gala Committee have scheduled the Annual Town Gala at Chilton for Saturday 29th June. Members of Chilton Town Council have also decided to recognise Armed Forces Day which this year falls on the same day. The Gala Committee and Town Council have agreed to work together in a bid to culminate both events.
In recognition of our Armed forces the day will commence with the flag being raised by the Mayor at 10.30am outside the Council offices, followed by the unveiling of a Tommy silhouette and dedication. We would like to invite ex and serving personnel & their families along as well as residents to both events.
Once the formalities are over at the Council offices then the fun will commence from 11am to 3pm at the Charlie Wayman Playing Fields (opposite West Chilton Terrace) and adjacent road which will be closed to traffic. Various activities are being organised and wherever possible it is hoped there will be something for everyone. The Gala Committee work tirelessly all year round in a bid to raise funds and spend a lot of time organising the event. Anyone wishing to join the Committee can contact Mrs L. Jones, Gala Committee Co-ordinator or attend the next Gala Committee meeting on Monday 15th April in the Wheatsheaf at 1.30pm.
Full details will be advertised nearer the event. For further information on the Gala or anyone wanting to hold stall please contact Mrs L. Jones 01388 721762.
