Spreading love about life in borough town

Volunteers are helping to spread some love this weekend.

The Whitley Bay Big Local Partnership is holding a ‘I Love Whitley Bay’ themed event at its pop-up shop in Park View.

Hosted by Kelly Oliver Dougall and Sarah Sutton, the event will be a mix of themed activities including arts and crafts, with visitors able to create their own heart shaped decorations.

Visitors between 10am and 1pm on Saturday can also share one thing they love about Whitley Bay.

Kelly said: “Whitley Bay has a fantastic community spirit and we hope this event will give people the opportunity to come together and share more of the great things that are happening.”

Sarah added: “It’s also a chance for people who may not be as familiar with what goes on in Whitley Bay to come down and find out a little bit more about things they would be keen to get involved with.

“Or perhaps they have a particular skill, hobby or talent which they would like to share with others and this event could inspire like-minded people to get together on a regular basis.”
