THE NEW Working Group established by the Town Council to arrange a programme of community events for Hedon, has drawn up an impressive line-up of events for 2014. If all goes as planned, then there will be an event taking place in almost each month of the year.
The Working Group has set itself the task of organising a series of smaller community events throughout the year that can appeal to a wide variety of people and interests. The events being arranged for next year, are:
- February – Family coach trip to York museum during half term holiday
- March – Cake bake
- May – Treasure hunt
- June – Pet show
- August – Golf day
- September – Scarecrow walk
- October – “Hedon’s got talent”
Councillor David Thompson said at the council meeting last Thursday that most of the original ideas for the events programme had arisen during chance conversations with people in the town. This certainly provides a positive response to those who thought that there really isn’t very much going on in the town – Hedon is where it’s happening!
The idea is that each event should be self-financing and aim to bring in an income to pay for future events.
The list of events for next year is not yet complete, and one of the ideas under active consideration by the Working Group is for a Hedon 10k running event.
Expect to hear a lot more from this hard-working group of councillors!
