ANOTHER action packed gala will take place in Templehall this weekend.

This summer’s gala, which is taking place on Saturday, will once again offer something for the whole family with attractions including face painting, various fairground rides such as ‘The Twister’ and the Fun House, balloon modelling, trampolines, quad-bikes, family races and interactive stalls.

The popular final of Templehall’s Got Talent will also take place live on the event stage.

There will be seven finalists performing: Caught Red Handed - Beth Foster, Wallis Scott and Alan Shanks; Kyle Todd; Rachael Stoddart; Wendy Mackie; Illuminous Cats - featuring Aimee Lindsay; Sheree Samson and Bekah Bowie.

There will also be a special showcase by world championship dancer Rhiannon More (13).

Cushion

This year, in partnership with Sustrans, will see the return of the Mountain Bike Stunt team and the Air Bag - a giant inflatable cushion designed for novices to try out bike stunts.

A display by the 105th regiment of the Royal Artillery, dancers, drummers, pipers and an interactive zumbathon will also feature.

Parade

The festivities will kick off at noon with the parade led by Kelice Peebles, Gala Queen and Rebecca McMorine, lady in waiting, who will open the event along with Councillor Neil Crooks.

The parade will leave from Templehall Community Centre to the site on Fair Isle Road.

Gail Knox, organising committee spokesman, said: “This year’s gala will prove to be another fun-filled event.

“We appreciate the efforts of all those who are supporting this annual community gathering, but we need more residents to get involved if the gala is to continue year on year.”
