Shelf Gala 2014
Shelf Gala was held this year on Saturday 5th July and although we were competing with the likes of Tour de France, the World Cup and Wimbledon we had another very successful gala. Once again the weather was kind to us and although our gate receipts and programme advertising were down, the stall income and beer tent were up. Our expenditure was slightly up but we had purchased some new equipment and spent more on arena entertainmentnd

All the preparations went fine, we used the new layout for the stalls stalls which seems to work better and again the procession started at Bethel Chapel. This year we had to employ the services of a traffic management company and although shorter than the original procession it enabled us to still include it as it is aa big part of Shelf Gala.

A big thank you once again to our sponsors Corel Windows, Interface, Blackshaw Holdings and Robinsons Farm Shop. Another big thank you to all the advertisers in our programme who support us year after year.
