More than 2,000 visitors enjoyed a day out in the sun at this year’s Shefford Gala on Sunday (September 22).
The popular event returned to the playing field at Robert Bloomfield Academy. The school was also celebrating its 75th anniversary.
A procession made its way from Samuel Whitbread Academy in Clifton to the school and the main event then took place.
This year the gala followed a harvest theme and many of the visitors and participants dressed up accordingly.
A large number of organisations from Shefford and the surrounding area took part in the event including the Shefford Majorettes, Shefford Lower School, the Biggleswade Sea Cadets and the Shuttleworth Birds of Prey Centre.
Many of the organisations put on live arena performances and there was also music from acts like 3 Days of Freedom and Space Goat.
Shefford mayor Paul Mackin said: “The day was a terrific success and the weather was just right.
“The number of people who supported the event made all of the effort we put into organising it more than worthwhile. It was great so see so many people attending.”
