Civic Events

To receive and consider the report of the Communications and Events Officer.


The Committee received and considered the report of the Communications and Events Officer.  Members gave thanks to the Officer for her work on the virtual Remembrance Day and also Mr Woodward who had done the filming. 


Members agreed to proceed with an online advent calendar with members and officers contributing to it. 


Members also decided to defer the Covid Heroes awards and leave it to the task and finish group to progress.


The Committee supported the idea of an Eco/Green pop up event – the Communications and Events Officer advised that she hoped it could be covered by the existing Events budget.


RECOMMENDED:             that the report be noted and:-


1.            thanks be given to James Woodward who filmed and edited a video for Remembrance Day;


2.            that the online Advent Calendar be agreed – this could be extended to others in the community (e.g. from the Church if some members/staff did not wish to participate);


3.            that the Task and Finish group meets again to decide when the Covid-19 heroes awards would be given out;


4.            that the Eco Green Pop Up event be agreed with suggested budget of £1,000 from existing budgets.
