Communities from across the West Midlands, including Coventry and Warwickshire, are being invited to host local events on the weekend of 30 June-1 July. They have the opportunity to bid for up to £500 from the National Lottery for their events – the deadline for applications is 16 April. The events could be a picnic in the park, a tea party, a sports day, a community football match, a mini party in the park etc.
The aim of the first Mayor’s Community Weekend is to bring communities together to celebrate the experiences they share. It’s a great opportunity for us to start having conversations about how health and social care might look in five to ten years’ time, as part of NHS70.
