We want to pack as much fun as possible into the Gala afternoon. We still need lots of help from everyone.

Ø  Here’s how you could help:

Ø  Man a sideshow for an hour (or more). We need people for the bouncy castle, coconut shy, Human Fruit Machine, Splat the Rat, Beat the Goalie, Fitness Challenge, Hook a Duck and more.

Ø  Help with a stall. People needed to sell raffle and duck tickets, run games and competitions or sell baking.

Ø  Contribute! We need donations of bottles for the bottle stall (to Phil and Debbie Murray-Mill of Uras, Catterline) and chocolate items for the chocolate tombola (to Steph Rodger, Gruinart, Catterline) and baking for the cake stall. We also plan to have a jar stall so would like contributions of clean jam jars filled with anything that would appeal to children- crayons, balloons, small toys etc. (value approx. £2 or less)  Another new stall will be a pre-loved toys lucky dip, so donations of soft toys in good condition would be welcome. Raffle prizes of all kinds will be most gratefully received.

Ø  Take part! Enter the very first Catterline Bake Off. Bring a sample of your home baking to be judged by volunteers. (For details of how to enter, contact Carys Thomas .

Ø  If you have photos or memories of Galas from the past 25 years, we’d like to use them to create a display.

If you can help in any way to make this our best Gala ever, please contact Steph Rodger, , Alison Brown or Nigel King (Pedal Carts)
