Due to the wonderful weather we're having at the moment the 2012 Gala moved to the Community Centre in a slightly slimmed down form, but that didn't dampen spirits (unlike the occasional shower). To us the new venue created amuch better atmosphere in the closer confines of the Community Centre and grounds.
The day also saw musical performances from Whitwell Brass Band in the morning, and local band After Hours later in the day with a great selection of rock classics and newer covers as well.
For the younger visitors the highlight was Savage Skills (as featured on ITV's Lets Get Gold) and their freestyle mountain bike stunt displays throughout the day.
We're in May already and that means May Day celebratinos at the community centre.
This year saw comedy skiffle group Kick 'n' Rush perform as well as May Pole dancing to music provided by Whitwell Brass Band.
Once again the Whitwell Community Centre will be hosting May Day celebrations on Monday 7th May from 1PM.
This years celebrations will include:
There will also be stalls and displays from local groups as well as burgers and refreshments available including the bar being open.
