Caton Gala 2015

Saturday, 13 June 2015 - 12:30pm

The  theme for Caton Gala 2015 will be “Animals”.  We have chosen this theme because we are very pleased to announce that our principal sponsor for 2015 will be “Bay Vets”. This is to coincide with the opening of their new veterinary surgery on Hornby Road. This very generous sponsorship will enable our local radio station “Bay Radio” to broadcast from the Gala. The Gala will take place on the Station Hotel field on Saturday 13th June 2015.

Entry forms for the coveted positions of Gala Queen, Attendants and Page Boy have now been distributed to local schools. We would ask that these be returned to us, via the school, by no later than the last day of term (27th March 2015). The same applies to the Drawing Competition. Would entrants to the Drawing Competition please note that the drawing needs to have sufficient contrast to enable its reproduction in the programme, a faint masterpiece is, sadly, not suitable.

Have you entered “The Windmill Race”. If you wish to, please see www.thewindmillrace.co.uk. There is also a facebook page, “The Windmill Race”.
The race is limited to 200 runners so it is best not to leave your entry until the last minute.

Our  Chairman is Nigel Beeson. Nigel can be contacted by e-mail at nigel.beeson1@btinternet.com (don’t forget the “1”). Please put “Caton Gala” in the subject box.
In the alternative all committee members can be contacted by e-mail at
 committee@catongala.com .

Venue: Station Hotel Sports Field

Planning ahead

Committee meetings  take place at the Station Hotel, Caton at 8:00 PM on the first Wednesday of each month.

As always, we do require more 'help on the day'. If you can help out in any way, then please get in touch with the committee!

Where we are                                                            

Caton is a small village, near Lancaster, in the North West of the UK. It is nestled in the Lune Valley, with the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, called the 'Bowland Fells' as it's immediate background.

A little further on the horizon are the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. All within easy travelling distance.

Caton Gala takes place on the Sports Field behind the 'Station' Pub. There is ample free parking available in the village but please bear in mind that this is a popular event and you may have to walk a little distance from the car to the field. Caton is on the main bus route from Lancaster to Ingleton.  We are also easily reached by bicycle from Lancaster following the Millennium Park Cycle Route.

        

     

What to expect

Caton Gala is a traditional village festival which takes place on the village sport field on the second Saturday of June each year. It is a value for money fun day out for all the family, gate fee is £4.00 per adult and kids go free (under 14). The day starts at 11.30 with the floats leaving the top of Brookhouse village, arriving at the main field in Caton at 12.00 noon. 

A whole range of refreshments is usually available including hog roast, ice cream, burgers, hot dogs, teas, cakes, sandwiches and strawberries / cream. The Farmers Market will also be on the field all day.

Regular features organised by villagers over the past years have included a tombola, dog show, vintage motorbike show, plant sale by the horticultural society, children's races and a craft activities tent, displays by the schools, rifle range, archery, coconut shy and much more. Trade features include fairground, swing boats and a bouncy castle.

Do remember to come in fancy dress and enter the competition - cash prizes to be won!

 

One of the aims of the Gala is to support local good causes. We are pleased to announce that in conjunction with other local bodies we have raised enough funds and  installed a defibrillator for emergency use within the locality.
