Funding for Traders Town Events
Newbiggin Mayor Alan Thompson and Deputy Mayor Lynn Burns visited the Golden Oldies Afternoon Tea at St. Bartholomew’s Church Centre last weekend to present Newbiggin Traders Association with a grant of £3,500.
Newbiggin Traders Association applied to the Town Council’s large grants scheme requesting financial support for the events that they host each year including the Easter event, Blooming Lovely, Fun Dog Show, Halloween party for children, Fireworks night, Christmas Lights Switch-on, Christmas party for children and the Golden Oldies Afternoon Tea. The events are popular with both residents and tourists and the Town Council were unanimous in agreeing their support of the Traders Association.
Town Mayor, Alan Thompson commented ‘the Town Council has been delighted to support the Traders Association for many years now, providing vital funding for their many events that are enjoyed by the local community and attracting visitors from further afield’.
