Bridge of Weir Gala Day

10 June 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Bridge of Weir Gala Day is back!
After the covid years, we had high hopes for last year which went really well, apart from the torrential rain and gale-force winds! We aren’t conspiracy theorists (yet!) so, undaunted, we
are having another go!

As always we are indebted to our sponsors whose generosity is much appreciated and to the local restaurants and takeaways who have donated vouchers for the raffle in aid of Calums Cabins.
We look forward to seeing you all at Gala Day.

The Committee
The committee is made up of willing volunteers from various organisations within the village, as well as some individuals who just want to do their bit. New committee members are always welcome, especially those with great ideas.
Committee meetings are on the last Tuesday of each month at 7pm in Hope Hall. We are grateful to Hope Hall for the free use of their facilities.

Bring your creation to Cargill Hall, Lintwhite Crescent at 11.30am on Gala Day and wear it / ride it / carry it in the Gala Day Parade all the way to Houston Park Road. Fantastic Prizes to be won!

Best Dressed House Competition
If you live in Lintwhite Crescent, Main Street or Houston Road, Bridge of Weir the Gala Day Parade will pass by your house. We’d love it if you could “do up” your house and garden for the occasion! (Gibb Stuart Vouchers for the winning houses!)
