Budleigh Gala Week 2011: a few photos

I mentioned at 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.

Local journalist Becca Gliddon presents a floral tribute to the Gala Queen .

Becca Gliddon's speech praised Budleigh Salterton Lions for their role in organising this big community event.

As usual the twirlers and cheerleaders put on a polished performance.

Budleigh Salterton charity Inaheartbeat were raising money for their Goody Boxes.

The local Inner Wheel team ran a popular plant stall.

Budleigh Salterton Lions run the Gala Week. The event raised £15,000 for charity.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has a Gala Week Stall, as you'd expect in a coastal town like Budleigh Salterton.

St Peter's C of E primary school fund-raising team of parents were there.

Fairlynch volunteer helpers Margaret Williams, left, and Ann Hack were raising funds for the town's museum.

Three-year-old Alex Mitchell went fishing at the Messy Church fete stall. I've been a bit slow in getting round to posting these photos, but maybe that's just me settling into the rhythm of West Country life. Also the weeds have been more active than usual now that our English summer has re-established itself after that Mediterranean hot spell.
