STARLIGHT

The annual Dulverton by Starlight Public Meeting will be held on Tuesday
5th March at 7pm in the Lower Town Hall. As it is Shrove Tuesday there
will be added pancakes!
The public meeting is open to all: shop owners, residents, visitors,
volunteers, anyone who would like to help or join the committee. We
want to hear your ideas: what you like about Dulverton by Starlight and
do you have any suggestions to include for future events.
Dulverton by Starlight is the town’s premier event, a winter celebration
signalling the start of the festive season, but the future of this event is in
doubt.
The present committee are a small but dedicated band of locals and
business owners who work throughout the year to put the event together.
At the moment there are more jobs than there are committee members
and the sad reality is that if we do not get new committee members
there will be no Dulverton by Starlight this year. I’m sure that you agree
that it would be a real blow for the town to lose such a unique and much
loved event due to lack of participation.
Please come along to the meeting if you are able to give a couple of
hours a month to join our easy-going committee to help with the planning
or are able to offer help on the day or as part of a group. If you are
unable to attend the meeting but would like to register your interest,
please email info@dulvertonbystarlight.co.uk.
We look forward to seeing you on 5th March
The Dulverton by Starlight Committee
