Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

As the 40th Gala Year comes to close and (hopefully) everyone settles down to enjoy the Christmas and New Year holidays, we like to say a big Thank You to everyone, especially all the people of Portaferry Town who throw themselves into Gala Week each year, also the various business folk of the Town who support us so well and those from outside who willingly come on board each July. Thanks too, to Jim Murdock from Ards Borough Council for all his help and support across the year. We hope everyone has a good rest over the next few weeks and we’re looking forward to Gala 2008.

Seasons Greetings too, to all our online visitors who drop by to keep in touch with Gala “goings on”, especially the regular reader logging in from Tonga, whoever you may be !

Brrrrrrrrr !

It was very cold, very windy and very wet, but that didn’t seem to put anyone off, yet again there was a great turnout in the Square for the switching on of the Christmas tree lights. A big Thank You to all the members of the various choirs the Mayor of Ards and of course to Santa for getting Christmas 2007 in Portaferry officially underway.
