Dore Scout & Guide Gala

The  Scout & Guide Gala should have taken place in July 2020 - Due to the Covid-19 outbreak the Gala was cancelled. There will not be a Gala this year as the planning meetings and background work in preparation for the 2021 Gala could not take place.  


The Dore Scout & Guide Gala is organised by a sub-committee of the Scout Group (Gala Committee) whose officers are:- Chairman Andy Donnelly - 07584641379, Secretary: Alex Deal, Treasurer: Mark Randall - 0114 2367716, Programme Advertising:  Holly Smart -  Other Committee members are:-  Mike Galsworthy, David Needham, Matt Naylor, Beverley Bones, Linda Oldfield, and Rachael Prangell.  We need volunteers to join the Gala Committee to ensure the Gala continues.  If you would like to join us please contact the  Chairman (as above).


If you would like to help sponsor our 2022 Gala we would love to hear from you.  The package includes advertising in our Gala magazine, on the field (banner at the periphery of the activity area), and the opportunity to hand out promotional material during the afternoon (sorry no selling allowed - Council regulations).

Gala Magazine and Programme

Each year the Group produces a Scout & Guide Gala & Festival Magazine and Programme that gives an insight into the various activities of the Scout & Guide Movements in the Village during the past year. It also details the Dore Well Dressing and the events taking place in the Village during the Dore Festival  in the fortnight leading up to Gala.  This magazine is distributed free of charge to the 3,000 homes in Dore.  If you would like to advertise in this magazine please contact Holly Smart  -  The deadline for the submission of advertisements for the 2022 programme is 29th April 2022.  

Help and support needed

It will soon be time to start planning our Scouts and Guides Summer Gala 2022. This annual event raises essential funds for our Scout Group and enables us to provide: vital equipment for our activity sessions and outings; Beaver, Cub and Scout Camps; and supports the maintenance and running costs of our mini bus, and Scout HQ where we meet each week. Gala funds enabled us to keep our low Membership Subscription. We will need to increase this for 2020-2021.

To continue to make the Gala happen each year, we need your help.
