Join the fun at Westerton’s Gala Day

WESTERTON’S annual Gala Day will be on Saturday September 8 - all thanks to a Big Lottery grant.

The event will have an Olympic theme this year and starts at 11.30am with a fun run. Throughout the day there will be a range of different sports as well as stalls and a seven metre climbing wall for those not afraid of heights.

The Gala Queen is Alana Heatherington, who will be joined by flower girls Rachel McDougal, Pip Peter, Megan Waterston, Rosa Ferguson, Trinity Murray and Mya Boyle. Her parade – which will also include Olympic torch bearer Jenna Speirs - will leave Wheatfield Road at midday. Everyone is invited to dress up sporty or represent a country and join the parade.
