Gala Day Traditional Duff-Making Contest (and Volunteers Needed)

Gala Day, 4th July from 1pm on Reef Machair, is fast approaching and new this year is a duff-making competition – that is, traditional clootie dumplings as served in kitchens around Uig.

All entries are to be traditionally made (ie without a microwave) and delivered to the machair by 1pm on Saturday 4th.  The prize is £50 and the lucky judges have yet to be appointed.

Volunteers to man stalls would be welcome, as would contributions of baking for the tea-tent and prizes for the tombola.  Volunteers can see Tina, Peter or Norrie, baking goes to Todag and tombola prizes to Janet Macleod, or leave a message here and we’ll put you in touch.

The Comann Eachdraidh will have a stall with Viking-related games and some genealogy and photos.  See you there.  The weather WILL be good – see last year’s pictures for proof of that.
