The Area Manager presented a report which informed Members of the intention to hold celebration events to mark 10 years of Area Council, which included a North Area 10 Year Celebration event and the opportunity to participate in the planning.


The following Members volunteered to form part of a planning group in preparation for the celebration event:-


Darton West Ward Alliance – Councillor A Cave.

Darton East Ward Alliance – Councillor Denton.

Old Town Ward Alliance – To be confirmed.  Councillor Howard offered to provide assistance in the event that a volunteer from the Old Town Ward Alliance could not be identified.

St Helens Ward Alliance – Mayor, Councillor Tattersall.


A discussion ensued which identified the positive benefits of holding the event in June 2023, which would be the national volunteering month, verses a date later in the year.  With consideration to be given for the event to be held on a Saturday which would attract a wider family audience.  An external provider would be utilised to produce a video to showcase the good work undertaken by the volunteers within the various ward alliances, which would be used in a variety of different environments.
