Weekend town gala

ORGANISERS are hoping the sun will shine on Featherstone’s town gala at the weekend.

Plans for the annual gala were a wash out in July after wet weather forced the town council to cancel the event. It was rescheduled and will now take place in Purston Park on Saturday September 15.

The event starts at 11am with a parade from St Wilfrid’s Catholic High School, arriving at the park at around midday.
