Organiser Peter Tait told the Herald: “This year the gala successfully managed to raise a record breaking profit of over £27,000.

“This achievement is even more astounding when taking into consideration the additional 2.5% VAT increase and the additional costs of almost everything associated with organising the week long event.

“This is a fantastic achievement which could only have been made possible by the hard work and effort exerted by everyone associated with gala, especially the committee, who once again have managed to cement it all together to produce such a successful event.”

With work still outstanding on the new Gala building the group are now looking for ideas and suggestions for new projects and welcome any input the public may have.

Peter continued: “Organisations, clubs and societies local to the Invercairn Communities are now able to apply for funding through the normal process, and forms are available from the Inverallochy Post Office and Cairnbulg library.

“All forms must be returned by Friday 30th September.

“If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, or would like to join our committee and be part of North East Scotland’s most successful gala, please email the secretary via invercairngala@hotmail.co.uk.”
