Weymouth’s Community Expo returns for a second year!
Following on from the success of last year’s first event, Weymouth Town Council’s Community Expo returns in May at the town’s iconic Jubilee Clock.
The event is a twist on the council’s annual town meeting highlighting the work of voluntary and community groups in the town, and also provides an opportunity for residents and visitors to find out more about council services and projects, and how you can get more involved in the decision-making process.
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.
Mayor of Weymouth, Cllr Ann Weaving, said: “I attended the first Community Expo event which was held at Redlands Sports Centre, and thoroughly enjoyed the day. It provided a fantastic opportunity to showcase many of the great voluntary, community and charitable organisations that operate in Weymouth.
“We had around 30 stalls from Nothe Artillery Volunteers to Dog Friendly Weymouth, the Dorset Volunteer Centre, as well as a range of stalls promoting the work of Weymouth Town Council. I 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.”
The event runs from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 20th May, with stalls located by the Jubilee Clock.
