EVENTS COMMITTEE members from Hedon Town Council met yesterday to formally launch the Hedon Town Calendar 2014.

The Calendar, with a different local photo depicting each month of the year, has been sponsored by local businesses and is being sold for £2.99.

The proceeds from the Calendar will kick-start a fund that will contribute towards and subsidise the costs of an exciting programme of community events taking place in 2014. Each event will aim to be self-financing and raise enough surplus to invest into the next and other events.

Councillor David Thompson said: “We kept hearing the refrain from people, that ‘there’s nothing ever going on in Hedon’ other than the big civic events and the Christmas lights switch-on, so we’ve decided to do something about that! A variety of smaller community events are being organised, one for each month of 2014.”

On the Calendar itself, Councillor Di Storr said: “The calendar is a great souvenir and would make a wonderful Christmas gift. It also serves to raise money towards our programme of community events and activities for 2014.”

One thought on “Hedon Town Calendar 2014

  1. I think the Council organising a series of events is a great idea. I hope people come out and support them. The more people get involved, the more money will be generated to support bigger better community events. Well done
