FUNDING available for community events is the focus of an Events Forum being hosted by Knutsford Town Council.

The Knutsford Events Forum was introduced in October as an opportunity for those organising public events in the town to share information, skills and experience.

Event organisers in Knutsford are being invited to attend the second Events Forum, which takes place at the town council offices on Wednesday, March 21 at 6pm.

Convened by the chairman of the town council’s Events Committee, Cllr Andrew Malloy, the forum brings together all those who organise events in the town and provides an opportunity for those with ideas for potential new events to come together.

At the last meeting several community organisations were involved, such as the Knutsford Lions, Knutsford Heritage Centre, Knutsford Promenades as well as The Courthouse, Sharston House and Willow Boutiques.

Cllr Malloy said: “Knutsford’s vibrant events calendar contributes greatly to making the town such a special place to live.

“The aim of this forum is to make it easier for everyone organising events in the town through sharing of experience and knowledge and providing a networking opportunity for event planners.

“This second meeting will focus on funding available for community events as well as highlighting the various avenues available to organisers to help promote their events across Cheshire and beyond.”
