Giving people the opportunity to imagine, fund & create projects that bring their local area to life
Aintree Village Festival is headed by Aintree Community Trust ACT a small local registered charity in Aintree, Merseyside, are now, at the request of local people, looking to finance a Summer Festival. For many years Aintree had an annual Gala which stopped in 2002, this has been missed by many and there is a real encouraging feel to this project. The support of local Scouts, Churches, Ratepayers Assoc, Parish councils, Businesses and other charitable groups offer much needed support and we require additional financial income to allow it to go ahead. A community Facebook group have been central to communicating this event to the community by publicising it. There will be children’s football finals, Professional musicians performing, Dance troops, Stalls and competitions during the day.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The old Aintree Gala which ended in 2002 was for many years the main community event and it's heritage has been lost to many. We hope to bring back many memories with artefacts and photo's of these events dating back to 1958 when it started. Improve the lives of the socially excluded. Opportunity for young and old to get together. All aspects of community life will be represented. Two local Parishes, Aintree Village and the village of Melling will combine and work together in this event. An opportunity to be involved in the Sefton Borough of Culture year 2020. Give local businesses the opportunity to get involved in a different way within their community. Introduce new members of the community to engage with new technologies and communication techniques and styles. Our aim is to leave a lasting legacy for future generations.
Steps to get it done:
We have aimed to engage with all sections of our communities with the main purpose of involving younger people within this project so that they may be able to continue to support community life in the future.
