Following the cancellation of both the 2020 and 2021 NSEs we have lost 2 years of valuable funding for community projects that would have continued to contribute to life of the village.
Projects such as the ’Light up Northowram Christmas Lights’ and ‘Northowram in Bloom’ floral displays both enhance the look and feel of the village and have been enabled through funding and support provided by the NSE over the last 9 years.
With your support, we hope to add to the £17,000 already distributed to good causes within the Northowram community. Beneficiaries have included our Churches, the Community Centre, ‘Northowram In Bloom’, the ‘Light Up Northowram’ annual Christmas Lights show, the newly formed tennis club and the potential lifesaving defibrillator sited at Northowram Library.
The grants provide valuable financial support to these small community groups that have limited access to alternative funds. But they also add to the appearance, atmosphere, community spirit and feeling in the village that is of benefit to all our residents.
Despite the cancellation of this year’s event, we are committed to the tradition of supporting these and other community projects, and also to making the 2022 event, which is the celebration of our 10th anniversary, even bigger and better.
We hope you will feel able to support this initiative aimed at backing our community with vital funding in these challenging times.
If everyone in Northowram gave a £1 instead of buying an Event raffle ticket, or £2.50 instead of buying an Event programme, this would significantly help towards our target!
