Earlier this year during the first week of August some events took place on Gamesley to celebrate 50 years since the estate part of Gamesley was built.
Although some elements of events to celebrate the anniversary had been some weeks in the making, there were two key events during a week of celebrations, one involving bingo, the other a rodeo bull.
The first of these events was a themed bingo night, with a singer and 60’s style drink including Cherry B’s, Babysham and Snowballs.

Following on from that on the Wednesday was the usual ‘meet the neighbours’ event, which obviously this year was themed for celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Gamesley estate.
The event featured a live band, stalls, afternoon tea, rides and the all-important rodeo bull which was a favoured attraction from the previous year.
In addition to the event, there was a display of images and news paper clippings from across the years, along with a collection of videos, and a sound post containing voices from other the years on Gamesley.
