Portaferry Gala members extend their deepest sympathy to the family of Gala Committee member Kathleen Mason, who has passed away.

To say Kate was a mainstay of the Portaferry Gala, would be an understatement in the extreme.
Her enthusiasm, willingness to help and boundless ideas and suggestions touched the entire Portaferry Community, not just through her work for Gala,
but through the many other organisations she was a member of.
Kate will be sorely missed and our prayers and thoughts are with her family.
