MELTHAM residents will soon be asked whether they want the village gala resurrected.
The event was axed last year, a year after its silver jubilee.
The committee stepped down in April 2003, after becoming tired of struggling with a lack of volunteers.
The gala had been running since 1978.
Now, a group of villagers is calling a meeting to see whether residents want the gala revived. The meeting will be at 7pm on Wednesday, January 21, in the Crossroads Centre.
Jean Ellis, one of the meeting's organisers, said: "If the people are interested we will get a committee together. A lot of people say they want a gala, but don't seem to realise there have to be people to organise it."
Anyone who cannot attend the meeting, but wants to support the gala, should phone Shirley Watson on 01484 850857.
