Ever wondered what it would be like to just up sticks and head off to experience another counrty and another culture ? A family who last week headed off to Calcutta, India, have launched an online blog of their “adventures”. Now, before you all cry “what’s this a blog of the week feature ?”, Nope, the family in question is that of a local lass ! Keep up to date with their four month adventure here Irish family Calcutta.
We’re sad to report that Peter Tomelty, who served on the Portaferry Gala Committee for many of it’s 40 years, has passed away. For visitors and townsfolk alike, Peter was synonumous with Portaferry and our annual festival.
Our thoughts and sympathy go out to his family.
In Gala Week 2005, BBC Blast followed the Sonic DJ Academy as they trained a few locals in the art of DJ’ing – you can see how they got on this Tuesday morning on BBC2 Northern Ireland at 10:30am, or, have a look at the Blast Website.
THE dates for the diary : 14-21st July. Hope to see you there !
well, it’s here, the year of the 40th Gala. May we wish all readers of the blog and visitors to the website, a Happy New Year and a great 2007.
