All welcome to Hawes & District Gala AGM

It’s the Hawes & District Gala AGM on Thursday, September 13 at 7pm at The Fountain Hotel

Here’s the report ahead of the meeting including the winners from the 2018 gala.

2018 Gala Results follow on below but first we’d like to thank all our Stallholders and Demonstrators who each gave their time free of charge and in several cases gave us a donation from their takings. Further donations welcome care of the Hawes Community Office

Thanks too for all our Goods and Services, as well as Tombola Prize Donations, also for our event Judges, and for the help we received before, during and after the Gala.

We’ve written individually to thank as many people as we can but if we’ve missed your contribution please accept this as our thank you.

The 2019 Gala will be held on Saturday 13th July.

At this stage, Expressions of Interest in providing Stalls or Attractions or Demonstrations are invited from Clubs, Associations, and Businesses whether or not you joined us in 2018.

Please email us at or leave contact details at the Hawes Community Office.

We’ve had several offers of help from our Feedback Forms and we are in the process of contacting those who expressed an interest.

We hope that they and well as many of you as possible will join us for our AGM on Thursday 13th September at The Fountain Hotel at 7pm where the key points will be Changes to the Constitution and Election of Committee.

The full AGM notice is available at Hawes Community Office, who will also have a copy of the proposed Constitution Changes to view.

Copies of these two plus the Financial Accounts to 31/8/18 will be available at the AGM.

Committee 2019 – We certainly need an Honorary Secretary as Cayla is not continuing in this role, and the positions of Chair and Honorary Treasurer are also to be filled as post holders automatically stand down after each event. (But can be re-elected).

Nominations are most welcome by email (above) or via the Hawes Community Office but subject to vacancies can also be made at the AGM itself.
