It's Your Festival
So we would still really like to hear from you about your thoughts on last year's Festival - good or bad - and let us have suggestions for how to improve in 2018.
If you would like to take an active role in any event - or introduce a new one - then we'd love to see you.

HOW WE HELP CHARITIES AND LOCAL GROUPS FINANCIALLY
Each year we as a committee are delighted to hand out monies to well known and respected local good causes, many of whom we can all relate to in one form or another and all of whom are very thankful for the donations in order for them to maintain the services they deliver. However giving to the same recipients year in year out is in our view not necessarily ideal especially as from one year to the next, new and emerging groups are formed and who may indeed need help to progress.
Cheques were given to many local charities at our AGM so a really big thank you to everyone who attended events or made contributions in 2017 and we will really appreciate your support once again for the coming year.
So our call now is to all new groups and those who may have not previously put their case forward, to do just that and be considered for a % of our monies raised as we want to be as encompassing as possible to all good causes in and around Stone.
How do you do this? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to log your groups interest in being considered for a disbursement stating your groups name, it's purpose, it's need and rationale and the people and groups of local people you serve and reach out to.
