THE much-anticipated Benarty Gala will return to Lochore Meadows next month. 

And with every nursery and primary school-aged child in the area receiving a free ticket, the Sunday June 30 event is the perfect way to get into the community spirit this year. 

The Benarty Events Group have organised a range of activities for the annual gala, including a funfair, bouncy castles, tombola, market stalls and races, as well as market stalls and live performances.

The parade will also be taking place this year and will leave from the Benarty Centre at 11am.

There will truly be something for everyone at the event, which the community looks forward to year after year. 

Soon, free tickets will be distributed to local children at both Benarty and St Kenneth's primary schools and nursery and Dunmore Nursery.

This entitles the child to a gala box, a drink and a wristband for the funfair rides and bouncy castles.

Those with children who live in Benarty but attend school outwith the area are asked to message the Benarty Events Group’s Facebook page to make the group aware. 

Private messages should include the names of the children and the school they attend. Arrangements will then be made to get tickets distributed.

Those who are not eligible for a ticket can purchase these now at the Benarty Community Shop in Ballingry, Benarty Fruits in Lochore and the Costcutters in Crosshill.
