One of my favourite days of the year. Im from a mining village and although the mine was closed many years before my birth, it was always a village with good community spirit where everyone knew everyone, a very nice place to grow up. Gala day is a special day for me, partly due to my Grandad being a miner and also because I want to support a good family friend who has put a lot of time and effort in bringing Trimdon Grange banner and many other surrounding village banners back to the meeting after years of gathering dust in churches and community centres.
Here are a few photos from the day
