HELLIFIELD Gala was enjoyed by all - despite Saturday’s showers, which meant gala queen Molly Murfin was crowned in the marquee.
Molly’s crowning was conducted by this year’s special guest, Adam Thomas, star of Emmerdale. Molly’s attendants were Tegan Stead, Isla Dawson and Iuan Bolland-Jones.
The night before there was a Hellifield’s Got Talent Night, included the general theme of this years gala - films and musicals.
The entertainment within the marquee included children’s entertainer Circus Jim, face painting, and The Saggy Bottom Boys playing Country and Bluegrass. Refreshments were provided by the WI. Outside the races and sports went ahead, with entertainment from the Garstang Gymnastics Display team.
