It was a day of mixed weather in Leswalt today with sunny periods then showers but it certainly didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits for the annual gala day in Leswalt in the North Rhins. The Gala started at 1pm and carried on throughout the afternoon until 4pm and took place on Leswalt playing field, in the centre of the village.

There was a very popular Car boot sale with lots of crafts for sale, home made jams, jewellery and bric a brac. Hot food, Donuts and Ice creams were on sale as well as alcohol from the beer tent which was run by the Blue Peter hotel from Kirkcolm.

The “Blue Bombshells” put on a great show for the crowds and during a rain storm too! Stranraer Lifeboat Crew won the Tug O war competition beating the “Blue Peter Kirkcolm Beer Bellies” and the Leswalt team. A pet show with lots of well behaved pooches, pony and trap rides, a snail race and lots lots more kept the crowds entertained. The Kids entertainment were doing the Conga around the parade ring and the kids were loving it.

A great day out for all the family. Tonight there is a quiz night in Leswalt memorial hall with a licensed bar
