WESTCLIFF Event Ideas 2022
When talking to Westcliff businesses many said
‘There ought to be some events in Westcliff’
Leading into Autumn and Christmas:
HCR/Westcliff businesses could put on a few smaller events as the festival has been cancelled.
Halloween Event Monday 31st October
32 Rumbling Tum, 54 Hamlet Court
Kay suggested Rosey Lea 137 & Foundry at 151
Below are some other suggestions:
If any of them appeal to you just suggest a time, place & theme and leave your name, business & contact. Also give feedback to others’ ideas. When 2 or more businesses are ready to start the event, let us know and we will help you promote it. State if you welcome more traders to join in.
Look at what is already planned for Southend and perhaps you can add a Westcliff version to their event. Think ahead for news coverage, allowing a week’s notice for the Echo, and two weeks for the Leigh & Westcliff Times. (editions out Mon 8 Aug, 22 Aug, 5 Sept etc)
SUGGESTIONS: It only takes one person to start something, others will join in!
A Westcliff Festival of Food:
Each week during the Summer Holidays, a different culture focus picked from:
African, Chinese, English, French, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish. As well as Food, could include Dance, Art, Costume etc
Something linked to ‘…loving my neighbourhood’ perhaps? (see separate pages) such as the Community Safety Charter, improving the look of the roads near your business, working with your customers & residents on a project?
Share this post with your colleagues, family & friends to agree a week you’d like to promote your culture, with special offers, activities and information. You pick the dates: first come first served. The Westcliff Partnership will promote this on our website and Facebook page.
All we ask is that you sign up to the NHW Community Safety Charter and join us as a member from just £10
