Mearns Gala Needs You!

The Laurencekirk Gala committee have almost finalised a programme of events - but are now appealing for volunteers for the week.

A date for the much-loved gala was set back in February. It will start the week beginning July 14, culminating on Saturday, July 20.

The committee are searching for volunteers to help with different events across the week as they gear up for the first gala in two years since last year’s was cancelled.

The group are also still on the lookout for stall holders.

A spokesperson for the committee said: “Owing to the new Entertainment Licence laws, we are looking for people qualified in First Aid who can attend the events during the week. We have the First Responders attending on the Saturday.

“We are also needing people to come forward to help with putting up the marquees and/or taking them down.

“We need these names a.s.a.p. so that we can confirm we can go ahead with our plans.”
