We want to take over an empty shop, decorate it as a Winter Wonderland and have a Santa's Grotto provided by volunteers on the three Fridays and Saturdays before Christmas. The first of these Saturdays will be a festive celebration, with stalls, performances and attractions and fireworks to encourage shoppers.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Since Bangor lost its cinema, arts centre and many high street shops in the recession, the People of Bangor Community Group has worked with others to give Bangor things to be proud of. The festive celebration brings together local English and Welsh speakers, students studying in Bangor from all over the UK and the world, and the community, business, churches and education sectors. Previous events have attracted many people, but have relied on volunteer fundraising and grants from the local and county council to break even. Funding from public bodies is not available now, so to keep the momentum going we are seeking other forms of support.
