This year our Mayor, Bill Hancock has chosen the rescue services of RNLI and BARB as well as Litter Free Coast & Sea Somerset as his joint Charities of the Year.
The Mayor is very keen to support these charities which are all helping Bill with his Mayoral Theme for this year which is Clean and Safe Beaches. The aim is to make sure that the coastline is a safe place for residents and visitors to enjoy as well as being as clean and free of litter and pollution as possible. The charities are also working hard to raise awareness of these issues and any funding they receive will help with campaigns, training and equipment.
The Town Council is arranging a fundraising event at 7pm the Oaktree Arena, Highbridge on 16th February. There will be live music from the fabulous band, Monopole, food, raffle and an auction. Tickets are £10 per person to include a basket meal. An experienced auctioneer will encourage guests to bid high to donate funds to help these important groups. If you would like to attend the event, please contact 01278 788088 or 01278 782216to book a ticket.
