Brambles Mid-Summer Gala 2011

This year's Gala was held  in The Rectory Garden of Holy Cross Church
Greenford, by kind permission of the Rector Neil Richardson, on Saturday 11th June. It was opened by -
The Worshipful the Mayor of the Borough of Ealing Councillor John Gallagher with The Mayoress Mrs Pauline Melson & Stephen Pound MP for Ealing North.

In spite of the previous days rain the Gala opened in brilliant sunshine which
much to our surprise continued for most of the day. We were fortunate to have additional groups joining us this year and  the increased attendance by  the public made our sixth Gala the best yet!
The Mayor and MP gave excellent opening speeches and then the Gala started, at 12 noon. There were all kinds of things to delight and amuse from Tombolas and Roller Train, BBQ and cream teas, Games and sales tables, cakes and sweets, balloons and a crockery smash.  The Brambles committee held its usual Plant Stall & Nearly New. 

The Holy Cross Scouting Units gave two excellent shows singing songs and acting them out! We were even treated to a fly past by the Red Arrows following the Trooping the Colour for the Queens Official Birthday.

The day was a complete success and added much needed funds to the Scouts, Guides and charities that came along to make the day so memorable. 
We are now planning next year's event!!     
Please come and join us.
