Helpston Gala is back!!

Never a village to sit on its laurels, the two committees of The Helpston Gala and The Helpston Open Gardens have joined forces and next summer will be combining their two events to launch the "Helpston Village Weekend".

 

 

On Saturday 11th June 2016, the Helpston Gala will take place with all the lovely favourites such as the BBQ , the Plant Stall, the Tombola and the Dog Show plus several new attractions.  Then, on Sunday 12th June Helpston will open its gardens for the third time - allowing people to take a peek behind the walls and hedges into some of the most beautiful and unexpected gardens in the area.  Whether belonging to a small cottage garden or a grand Rectory there is sure to be something for everyone.

 

The combining of the two events came about initially out of necessity than choice.  The Helpston Gala, after having been an annual Church run event for over 40 years simply ran out of steam and failed to make an appearance in 2015 - much to the shock and dismay of the villagers and committee.  Not wishing to repeat the experience, the Gala committee looked to galvanise the event and the suggestion of joining forces with the Open Gardens was born.  Rev Dave Maylor said Both committees were delighted with the idea and feel it is just what is needed.  We have often found ourselves duplicating roles & workloads at these two events and this way we are making much better use of everyones time and expertise.

 

 

It is also hoped that, if sufficient volunteers can be found, there will be a village BBQ on the evening of Saturday 11th June, utilising the Gala BBQ and taking advantage of the closure of Church Road.  However, these things always require helpers so if you would like to volunteer to help make the evening event happen then please contact Tammy Tushingham on tammy.tushingham@btinternet.com or 07734 544578.
