The seventh Bramham Gala was held on Saturday and the sun shone, the crowds turned out and the beer flowed.

The day started off with an official opening by local MP Alec Shelbrooke and was followed by the first of two performances by the Supreme Starlet Majorettes with a full repertoire of displays from a wide range of all age groups of boys and girls.

A spokesman for the gala said: “The highlight of the show were the Savage Skills Cycle stunt team who did three performances, each one drawing sharp intakes of breath from the crowd.

“The team of bmx and mountain bike riders showed their skills by balancing on one wheel, leaping up poles and onto the roof of their van, followed by somersaults and trick jumps from ramps.”

There were a wide range of stalls, stands and food stalls and the Guides ran a barbeque with a creperie, fish and chips and ice cream.

Stalls were from Bramham in Bloom, Bramham Church, Yorkshire Countrywomen’s Association and the Friends of Bramham School sold plants, teas, coffees and cakes between them.

Other local groups raised money in a variety of ways for their causes and did very well indeed.

Keith Innocent Chairman of Bramham Gala said: “Yet again the residents of Bramham turned out in force to support the Gala which gets bigger and better each year.”

The Gala Gig takes place on Saturday at the Village Hall.
