I am very surprised that there is no mention of wick Gala Week events in the whats on section on the org.
I was looking on behalf of a friend for events being held, and there is no mention of wick gala, though the events for thurso Gala are there.

Thurso's programme is there because I mailed it to the org, asking them to display it and it is a bit messy as I used word.

I also entered each item individually on the what's on calendar and believe me it takes ages but I feel is worthwhile.

A big thank you to the org for providing these valuable services.

The Programme is also on the Dounreay notice boards stars!, www.thurso.org (http://www.thurso.org) thank you Robin and will soon be back on our bebo page and was sent to Caithness FM another valuable what's on service, a big thank you to them aswell.
