The Ossett Gala celebrated its 30th anniversary in style this weekend, as thousands of people flocked to enjoy the event.

Mark Elleker has been involved in the Gala for seven years. He said: “It’s kind of like a showcase of people, talent and organisations, it’s one of the biggest events in the town.

“The town is rammed on that particular day.

“We’re always looking for volunteers, for other people to help out on the day.”

Since launching three decades ago, the gala has raised thousands of pounds for charities and local businesses.
