Here at Jones Harris we like to do our bit for the town. Over the years we’ve entered Scarecrow competitions and other projects aimed at raising the town’s profile. We like getting involved in Fleetwood and we’re looking forward to Tram Sunday.
It’s fair to say that Tram Sunday is the one event which raises Fleetwood’s profile more than any other. Or Fleetwood Festival of Transport, to give it its full name.
Each year the event gets bigger and bigger, attracting upwards of 60,000+ people to town for one big day of family fun. It’s the biggest transport themed festival of its kind.
Getting Involved in Fleetwood
It’s been a pleasure to be involved with the volunteer team of organisers as they’ve grown the event from strength to strength. We’ve helped with business and financial planning and support the administration of a significant award from the Arts Council. That grant has seen the SpareParts Festival being rolled out to five other UK towns – all from a concept created here in Fleetwood.
Often the simplest form of support can make a big difference to organisers of community events. Many businesses support the galas, fetes and festivals which we’re still lucky enough to see in all of the towns of the Fylde Coast. But these events rely on the help of the business community to ensure their success.
If you’d like to help out in your town, it’s not all about donating money (although that is very helpful!) Jones Harris is the postal address and drop-off point for Tram Sunday correspondence, taking another administrative problem away from the hard working team.
Are you going to Tram Sunday? It’s all over Fleetwood on Sunday 21 July. Find out all about it at www.visitFleetwood.info. Look out for the fairground attractions situated right outside our offices!
