Scarecrows to join Thorner gala fun

The excitment surrounding the Royal Wedding may have died down a little, but that hasn’t stopped Thorner Gala theming its signature Scarecrow Competition as ‘Weddings Throughout the Centuries’ to mark the occasion.

After this topical contest has kicked off proceedings, with the judging on June 19, the Gala proper will take place this Saturday, June 25, on Millennium Green, Thorner.

The line-up of stalls and attractions will include birds of prey demonstrations, fairground rides, have-a-go zumba, ponies and a rodeo bull.

Proceedings will get underway with a parade down Main Street from 1pm with the fun continuing through the afternoon until the evening session, which includes live music, a barbeque and beer tent, taking over from 5pm.
