Mayor's Community Weekend

The Mayor’s Community Weekend is aiming to encourage communities to come together and celebrate the region's diversity.

They’re working in partnership with the Big Lottery Fund who will be offering grants of up to £500 to groups who want to run an event. The event can be anything that brings your local community together such as organising a community picnic in the park a community sports day, volunteering for gardening duties or community painting.
