Community groups offered seafront promotion at Community Expo

Following on from the success of last year’s event, Weymouth Town Council’s Community Expo returns in May at the town’s iconic Jubilee Clock on our beautiful seafront.    

The event is a twist on the Council’s annual town meeting where you can find out more about council services and projects, and it also highlights the work of voluntary and community groups operating for the benefit of our communities. Plus, you will also get the chance to meet the new Mayor of Weymouth and hear a short annual report from the Town Clerk on what the Council has done over the past year and how it spends tax-payers money.  

If you are a local charity or community group who would like to take part and run a stall at the free event, then Weymouth Town Council would love to hear from you. A lot of community groups have signed up already, including:  

Weymouth Samaritans   

Beach Babes Weymouth  

Read Easy Dorset  

Skills and Learning  

Weymouth Vehicle Preservation Society  

Volunteer Centre Dorset  

Weymouth & Portland Marine Litter Project  

Age UK  

Park Community Centre   

Weymouth Football Club    

Jane Biscombe, Weymouth Town Council’s Town Clerk, said: “The Community Expo provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase the work of the many voluntary, community and charitable organisations that operate in Weymouth as it’s a really useful networking event.   

“We hope to see many more people coming along to the drop-in event happening at Jubilee Clock this year, which will be a great way to find out more about all the fantastic work that is currently happening in Weymouth for the benefit of the town’s different communities. If you are a local community group and want to be involved then get in contact with Charlotte!”   

The event runs from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 18th May, with stalls located by the Jubilee Clock.   

If your organisation would like a stall at the Community Expo 2024, email charlotteemery@weymouthtowncouncil.gov.uk by Friday 3rd May, midday.
