BALMULLO residents turned out en masse at the weekend to enjoy another fantastic gala day.

Festivities started on the Friday with a football tournament for primary and secondary school children.

The event was officially opened on Saturday morning by gala queen Beth Forrester, while Ina Cameron was later named outstanding citizen.

Among the attractions were chlidren’s races, a dog show, a motorcycle display and an evening disco.

Michael Grant, gala committee chairman, thanked everyone who contributed to a great day.


He said: “The turnout was massive and the feedback from people in the village has been excellent.

“We had a bit of rain but overall the weather was pretty good to us.

“Our evening entertainment with the live band went down very well and lots of people said the afternoon dog show was great too.

“People seemed to enjoy themselves from what I could tell, and we were all shattered at the end!”
