Can you help Thornton Cleveleys Gala?
Thornton-Cleveleys Gala use the old air raid shelter on King Georges Playing Fields. It’s been used for the last 30 years but recently the hut has been severely damaged. Cracks are appearing in the concrete roof due to children jumping on it, bricks being removed from the wall and the roof being set on fire this year.
The equipment store is now in drastic condition with the Gala having to replace the majority of the equipment year on year due to the damp conditions it is stored in. Wyre Council and an independent contractor have quoted to get the hut repaired but your help is needed to do this.
If the hut isn’t repaired this type of event won’t be able to continue as so much equipment can’t be replaced every year. If anyone can help either to donate money for the repairs or donate equipment the Gala team will be eternally grateful.

Planning for the Gala is well under way, but the Committee could always do with the help of more people. Particularly those who could help to marshal on the day.
If you are interested please get in touch. If you can’t make meetings that’s not a problem, but if you can commit to help either on the day or before hand that would be great.
Each year everyone want bigger and better. To achieve that needs more volunteers!!
Please don’t ask Visit Cleveleys if you have a query – we are just the messengers 🙂
