2012 Message from our Chairperson
In my ninth year of office as the chairperson of Linlithgow and Linlithgow Bridge Children’s Gala Day I write this letter with thoughts of last year and feel as though it was just yesterday that Joy Cummings crowned Holly Dolan Queen of Hearts.
The Gala Day takes many months of hard work to prepare. The fund raising, rehearsals and stage building only take place because of the determination of the committee members. They work tirelessly to make sure the Children have a day they will remember for the rest of their lives and I thank them on behalf of the community for their continued support.
The wider community also support and contribute to the day. The schools, youth organisations, bands, clubs, churches, Deacons Court and many more. To them the committee are very grateful.
This year it was a great honour that Mrs Marion Snedden agreed to be our lady crowner. Mrs Snedden has spent her entire teaching career in Linlithgow and has given her time generously to support our community through her involvement with local youth groups.
This year the honour of being Queen of the Gala goes to Fiona Tuckett. She joins a long list of young ladies from the town who have been honoured to be crowned Queen of Hearts. I hope that Fiona and her family have a very happy and memorable day and enjoy the part they will play in making the Gala a success.
I hope everyone involved in this year’s Gala enjoys it as much as I enjoy being involved in it. Whatever your involvement, from cheering the children on the street to taking part in the procession, be assured that not only the committee but also the children value your support greatly.Yours sincerely
