It has been another successfull year for the committee with July’s event getting a great response from the Laurencekirk public.

The committee has lost some key members, but are pleased to have Stewart Davidson take the reins as chairperson and Pauline Stuart to take the role of vice chairperson.

They are also delighted to have new volunteers to run the hugely popular kids club as well as some new faces willing to join the committee and help make the event a success.

Of course there is always more room at the inn and the committee would be delighted to hear from anyone willing to lend a hand. Keep an eye on your Observer in the coming months for news of the first meeting in 2011 when they committee will be planning the 2011 Laurencekirk Gala as well as a fundraising event early in 2011.

Members were saddened to lose a number of committee after this year’s event but would like to thank them all for their help over the years.

Particular thanks go to Nerys Rae and Lorraine Hudson who have been part of the gala committee since it was reformed five years ago and most recently served as chairperson and vice chairperson respectively.

Pauline Stuart presented Nerys and Lorraine with flowers this as a small token of the committee’s appreciation and reminded them that they will always be welcome back!
