LIGHTCLIFFE’S popular gala is set to be bigger and better than ever with hundreds expected to flock through the gates.

There will be a stack of stalls, rides and games, providing fun and entertainment for all the family.

From 2pm, the gala will once again be graced with the talented dancers from Dorothy Stevens School.

Gala goers will get the chance to relax in the spendour of Lightcliffe Cricket Club pavilion with fantastic teas, succulent scones and a range of homemade produce.

Favourites like the bouncy castle, slides, coconut shy, bottle stall, penalty shoot out, tombola, and golf pitching will once again grace the ground off Wakefield Road.

There will be cries of ‘house’ as people enjoy games of village bingo.

A well stocked bar will serve beers, lagers and ciders. There will also be quality ice-creams to relax with as people soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the dancing, singing and sopranos on the lawns.

The basic message of this year’s gala is fun for all the family, in splendid surroundings at competitive prices.

Chairman and Gala co-ordinator Steve Hartley said: “We are hopeful of another fantastic day. We have been working hard to ensure we improve on last year’s record day. All we need is the sun to shine and people from the local community to support us. Thankfully we have always been lucky in both respects, and we are really grateful for the support we receive from local people, shops, and businesses.”

The event, this Sunday, is free to enter.Anyone who can help to move tables, deliver fliers and erect tents can call Steve on 07803 736959. “We would also be happy to receive any baked cakes or home made produce.”
