I mentioned at http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2011/05/budleighs-2011-gala-week-28-may-5-june.html that I'd be posting photos of Budleigh Salterton's Gala Week 2011 and here they are. Well, some from the opening day's celebrations anyway. Here's the coach taking the Gala royal family to The Green.
Becca Gliddon's speech praised Budleigh Salterton Lions for their role in organising this big community event.
Budleigh Salterton charity Inaheartbeat were raising money for their Goody Boxes.
Budleigh Salterton Lions run the Gala Week. The event raised £15,000 for charity.
