Shelf Gala.

Families enjoyed a fun day out at the 56th annual Shelf Gala.

There were stalls, a beer tent, face painting and fun fair rides at Shelf Hall Park yesterday afternoon (Saturday).

A gala procession set off from Witts car park at 12.45pm and paraded through the streets of Shelf before reaching the park at around 1.20pm.

This year’s gala queen was Keira Hayes, who opened the gala after her coronation.

For the first time there was a dog competition, which included best fancy dress, best dog in show and the dog and owner pair that looked the most alike.

Entertainers included dance group Pennine Magpies, band Selah Sounds, the Crusaders marching band and Shotokan Karate.

Organisers of the Gala thanked the sponsors Coral, Blackshaw holdings, Robinson’s farm shop and Interface for their support.
