Green Lights and Funding Offers for Celebration

Another very lively and productive meeting yesterday evening at The Golden Star with local residents, traders, artists and business people updating on how exhibitions, workshops, a charity shop fashion show, a children's treasure hunt, live performances, craft stalls and various other happenings are shaping up, with lots of applications and inquiries coming in from around the area.

Appliation forms (click here) now available for anyone who wants to get involved with activities, suggest new ones or help out on the day. There's still time so please fill one in. As well as artists, traders, craftspeople and performers we'll need extra volunteer helpers on the day so please lend a hand if you can.

Fantastic news from Jane of the organising crew - she met up with Helen and Vicky from the City Council Events team and they arranged a site meeting on the spot and resolved all our main site issues.

Cue East have offered funding to train volunteers to document the event through film. We need to find the volunteers for this to happen so please email Stefi (click here) with any inquires for this.

A priority following this meeting is trying to engage with as many traders from the area as possible so we'll be organising a meeting as soon as we can to enable more traders to get actively involved and ask any questions.

And many thanks to The Golden Star pub for putting us up at such short notice after a mix up with bookings at The Blue House!

Next meeting: Wednesday 25th August, The Blue House, 19 Muspole Street, 6.30-9pm
