CAN I thank the people of Featherstone for the wonderful support that was given on the occasion of the town gala.
We were blessed with glorious weather. The event was a great success and brought the whole community together. Lots of different people contributed to the success of the gala and I want to express appreciation to those who supported the gala parade, those organisations involved in providing entertainment during the afternoon and also the participants in the sports and fancy dress competitions.
The gala gives an opportunity for local organisations to raise funds for good causes and I was delighted that so many different organisations were able to participate and demonstrate the work that they do for the community.
I have received many favourable comments about the success of the gala. It is one of the major events in the town council’s calendar and the town council will continue to provide similar events in future.
In my year of office I will be supporting as my main charity Help for Heroes. The gala gave me an opportunity to raise the profile of this charity and also raise somefunds for the important work it undertakes.
Thank you again to everyone for the support you have given.
