Lots planned for Driffield Rec Gala Day

After making a successful return last year following a four-year break, Driffield Town Cricket & Recreation Club’s popular Gala Day will take place this Sunday (30th June).

Hundreds of people will go along to Kings Mill Road, which is home to Driffield’s cricket club, a tennis club and two bowls clubs, for a day of family-friendly attractions, including a dog show which, for the second year running is being sponsored by the Driffield & Wolds Weekly.

Last year, the Gala Day, which was opened by Coronation Street actor and Celebrity Big Brother housemate Colson Smith, raised over £4,000, all of which went towards maintaining the pitches and facilities at the club.

The event will open to the public from 10am and among the attractions confirmed so far are:
