A big thank you has gone out to everybody who helped make the 61st Manea gala a success.

The day saw another successful year of fun and entertainment - despite the rain.

Crowds flocked to the event which launched with the traditional parade of tractors, floats, classic vehicles and brightly dressed walking paraders who wound their way to the sports field where there was a host of games, stalls and refreshments.

Their Facebook page said: “Thank you to everyone who attended the gala. The committee for all their hard work, time and planning. “The feedback on the Facebook page is lovely to see the enjoyment that was had by all.

“Thank you to the people around the community that pulled together to support the gala and help them over the weekend. All the local businesses that donated prizes. The people that gave their time.”
