Shelf Gala is finally upon us and there’s a whole stack of events to look forward to today.
This year’s 54th event hopes to be its biggest and best yet, taking place at Shelf Hall Park.
There will be stalls and displays, food outlets, childrens games and beer and tea tents to look forward following the kick-off parade which will be making its way through the village arriving at the park at around 1.30pm.
The Gala will be opened by the Gala Queen, Miss Chelseigh Darling with her attendant Miss Laura Wren, and the day will round up at around 5pm.
There may still be a few traffic problems following the parade, although these should die down soon.
Buses on services 508, 570, 571, 681 and 682 may be delayed slightly due to disruption caused by the parade. There will be a rolling road closure towards Shelf roundabout, but no diversions are planned.
