Whitwell Gala 2011 – A Great Day Out

If you didn’t come down to the Whitwell Village Gala this year then you missed a treat, the weather maybe wasn’t hte best but we avoided any major downpours and all had a great time.

This year saw the introduction of a couple of new items, the photo and art competitions as well as the “World Tiggy Off t’ Ground Championships” – Which was won by Northern Monkey.  Hopefully we’ll be ablre to get hold of copies of the winning entries for the art and photo competitions (We have the winning entry for the 11+ photo competition but not the others).

The Gala also saw the launch of the latest must have fashion accessory, the WAA Nose Clip – a bit of fun may be, but making a serious point that if we don’t all pull together to stop the Alkane Energy development then we’ll all be needing a nose clip to visit the Gala if it goes ahead.

The Whitwell Welly Wanging Champion 2011 was also crowned and presented with their trophy – of which we’ll be posting up later.
