The Brambles Outdoor Centre 12th Annual Mid-Summer Gala in

The Rectory Garden of Holy Cross Church Greenford By kind permission of The Rector.

Our 12th annual Mid-Summer Gala to raise funds for our local Scouts, Guides and other charities was again a great success this year.  The hottest day of 2017 so far discouraged early visitors - fortunately they came along later in the afternoon when things had cooled down a bit!
The event was opened by The Deputy Mayor of Ealing Cllr. Tejinder Dhami & Cllr Aysha Raza who also presented the prizes for the most deserving stalls which went to 1st Greenford Guides - House of Commons Champagne (donated by our Ealing MP Steve Pound) & 9th Greenford Scouts BBQ All Day Breakfast - a large box of chocolates.

During the afternoon we were brilliantly entertained by the Holy Cross Players singing some numbers from this year's pantomime - Cinderella.  The Gala is principally organised to raise funds for Greenford organisations. It is also a wonderfully social event where leaders and friends can swap stories and catch up in the superb surroundings of Holy Cross Rectory garden. The Rector of Holy Cross had a stall devoted to raising funds for the church roof repair fund and The Brambles held our usual successful Plant Stall. Guides and Brownies provided the refreshments and a tent for the little ones to do handicrafts. Other Guide and Scout pitches were well represented.
The event finished at around 4.30pm.  Very soon after that the garden was returned intact (!) to the Rector, The Rev Graham Miller. Our thanks go to all who visited and to the Groups who worked so very hard to make the Gala a success.
