Clipstone Community Gala events

Clipstone’s Community Gala, which was revived last year after an absence of more than 20 years, is to be held on Saturday, 18th July.

It will run from 11.30am to 5pm on the football field on Church Road, Clipstone, behind the Welfare Social Club.

Last year’s event included the crowning of a new Clipstone Coal Queen, Natalie Leech, by the reigning coal queen, Amanda Ward.

This year’s gala will include a cake-baking competition, the Clipstone Coal Queen competition, princess and superheroes children’s fancy dress, egg-catching contest, photo competition, dancing displays, brass band, games and stalls. Admission is free, but no dogs are allowed.

Stalls will be hosted by the Royal British Legion, Guides and Brownies, Forest Town Nature Conservation Group, Sherwood Forest Brass, Nottinghamshire Search and Rescue, Army Cadets, Sure Start, Slimming World, Clipstone junior football teams and Into The Streets Free Dance Group.

The event has been organised by volunteers and Clipstone Colliery Regeneration Group CIC.
