Local communities are asked to come up with ideas for events in their areas. Events could be centred round food, sport, the environment or health and culture.
The event is a celebration of the great spirit of community that exists across the country and an effort to help people who share communities to come together, get to know each other and deepen the sense of community in their area.
Events will take place over the May Bank Holiday weekend (4-6 May) 2019. The days will be getting longer and the summer will be just upon us.
The success of this initiative lies in having local communities coming together to plan events that will work best for their area. This celebrations belongs to everyone. We don’t want to tell communities what they should do, events will be very much driven by communities. These could include themes around sport, history, baking, anything that will help neighbours to come together. It could be as simple as neighbours coming together for a cup of tea and a chat.
The event is a chance for people to foster a sense of helping each other by coming together, not just on that day, but all year round. It’s the chance for everyone to get know all members of their community, to reconnect with neighbours and have a celebration together that is open, inclusive and local.
The National Community Event, to be held for the first time over the May Bank Holiday weekend, 2019.
