£20,000 for two Midsomer Norton community events
Some £20,000 will be spent staging two community events in Midsomer Norton.
Half of the money being put up by the town council will be spent on a Christmas Fayre on Friday, December 6 which is organised by the local chamber of commerce and Welton Baptist Church.
This year's event, between 5pm and 8pm, will see the return of reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh and a traditional nativity with carols which will be enhanced by a children's procession, the Christmas lights switch-on and stalls from community groups.
The other £10,000 will be spent on a summer event to be organised jointly by the town council and Midsomer Norton and District Carnival Association. The event will combine the Midsomer Norton Community Fun Day and Medieval Fayre Day and celebrate 760 years since the town was granted a Royal Charter to stage a summer fair.
