Luthermuir Gala plans taking shape

villagers are gearing up for Luthermuir Gala Week, which begins on Monday June 3 with a Walking Treasure Hunt around the village. Leaving the hall at 6.30pm, the hunt is suitable for all ages, and refreshments will be available in the hall afterwards.

Tickets are now on sale for a cookery demonstration on Wednesday, June 5, when some local men will be sharing their recipes and demonstrating their signature dishes in what is likely to be a very entertaining evening. A glass of wine and lucky ticket draw is included in the ticket price.

There will also be a raffle with some great prizes including celebrity chef cookbooks with autographs.

The Gala quiz night is in the small hall on the Friday evening – as usual, this is a bring-your-own refreshments event.

Finally, Gala Day, which this year is being held on Sunday, June 9, in the park and hall. Following last year’s very low turnout for the football competition, organisers have decided to take a break from that this year, instead opting to try out some new events.

The gala will open with a ‘Heroes and Villains’ fancy dress competition for all ages, with points awarded for originality – the more homemade the costume, the better!


A fun dog show will run throughout the afternoon, with classes including handsomest hound, prettiest bitch, golden oldie, best child handler, and the egg and spoon.

Copies of the schedule for the show will be available shortly and registration takes place on the day from 1pm.

The organisers are pleased to welcome back the Eileen Lindsay Dancers this year, who will give two performances during the afternoon.

A variety of stalls, including some local craft producers will be in the park. Anyone wishing to bring a stall contact Susan on 01674 840260.
