Sub-groups of the Community Council

Resilience Task Group

Whenever the town needs support 'Resilient Gala' is here to provide assistance. For example, this can be when the town suffers flooding or excessive snowfall.

Gala Christmas Lights and Events

From Christmas markets to fund raising concerts 'Galashiels Events' make sure there is always something to look forward to in the town.

Galashiels Walking Festival

Our well established, annual walking festival provides locals as well as visitors the opportunity to explore our stunning countryside.

Galashiels in Bloom are a group of volunteers who work very closely with Scottish Borders Council and whose aim is to help keep Gala looking good.

Gala In Bloom

The aim of this worthy group is to rejuvinate and renovate the waterways of Galashiels and to create a pathway along the Gala Water and mill lade system.
