Gala Fund

Gala Fund

Some money, yesterday.The accounts from the 2007 Catterline Gala have been tallied and it seems that we made a profit on the weekend of £710.43. This is despite the fact that we spent rather more than usual on entertainment for the day and also acquired sundry bits of equipment such as spot lights, extension leads, etc as a resource for future galas and other community events, etc.
After having put aside enough money to launch next year's gala, we have a surplus that we're planning to give away to local groups, projects, etc. The initial fund is £500 in total, with the possibility of more being made available in spring 2008. The initial £500 will be divvied up at the next Gala meeting (7th Feb 2008), and we are now inviting applications from local groups and individuals who would like to be considered for a share of that money. Applications should be made in the first place by either speaking to a member of the Gala Committee or by sending us an email.

Gala Fund

Catterline Gala has a healthy surplus of funds, which means that we now have a small amount of money available for local projects and causes.
Donations have in the past been made for the following projects/organisations;
  • Replacement windows in Village storage shed
  • Donation to Catterline Coastal Rowing group
  • Catterline Fishing Competition
  • Catterline Bike Ride
In previous years:
  • Purchase of party marquee for village use.
  • Purchase of Annette Stephen painting for appreciation by village
  • Kinneff Village Hall. £1000 towards providing disabled toilets.
  • Stonehaven First Responders. £150 to by buy waterproofs and boots for their volunteers.
  • Village Notice Board. The delapidated old notice board outside the school has been replaced with a brand new one which is both lockable and weatherproof.
  • Village barbecue. We bought a community barbecue for use by anyone in and around Catterline. Details on how to arrange a loan of it will be published in the near future, but in the mean time contact the gala committee if you want to get a shot.
