Ferris wheel at Old Goole Gala Location on map

The Old Goole Gala is back!

The Kerfoot Group has always believed in the importance of supporting the communities that we work and live in.  We now employ more than 50 people across our three factories in Goole so are incredibly proud to be supporting The Old Goole Gala, this year at South Park in Old Goole from the evening of Friday 16 August to Sunday 18 August.

There has been a Gala during the summer in Old Goole for many years which was a highlight for many generations of the local families.  But sadly in recent years the Gala has become smaller until it became just a fun fair in the park.

However, this year a group of local people have decided to turn this around, determined to reinstate the Gala to the amazing local attraction it once was.  They have received grants from the local government, have done plenty of fund raising and secured donations from local employers, including The Kerfoot Group.

As well as the fun fair there will be a host of other attractions across the three days.

On Friday night there will be live music and a fireworks display, on Saturday there will be lots of sporting activities for children and adults; these include an under-7’s sports workshops, children’s races and a football tournament for the over-7’s as well as craft and food stalls, live music and goody bags for the children.

On Sunday there will be a parade of floats, classic cars, Goldwing bikes and a jazz band with more fun, games and music in the afternoon.

The weekend is all set to be jammed packed, with something to attract and entertain everyone……………….. we’re just keeping our fingers crossed that the weather stays dry!
