LOCHGELLY Gala 2019 is only 10 days away and the organising committee wants the public to make sure they get their gala bag tickets and wrist bands for the various rides that will be at the Public Park.

The last date to buy gala bag tickets is this Sunday, August 11.

Said the Gala Committee's Derek Johnstone: "These can be bought from the Co-op, Imrie's Menswear, Special Occasions, Minto Lounge, Kooners, The Wee Shop, The Loft, The Community Shop and the West End Bar.

"Also, wrist bands are available from The Co-op, Macari's Cafe, Special Occasions, Minto Lounge and Shardy's.

"Please try and purchase your wrist bands prior to the gala to avoid queueing on gala day."

The committee is hoping that the weather gods smile on them this year for the big day on Sunday August 18.
