The PCC has given £500 from the Community Safety Fund towards Middlesbrough’s Diwali festival on 6 November 2021.
It is a free, public event to be held in Centre Square, Middlesbrough and will be accessible to people from all backgrounds.
The event aims to invite people to join together and enjoy a family fun day.
The event features live entertainment, creative workshops and activities, a carnival-type parade and a firework finale.
Funding will help towards the safe running of the event whilst providing an opportunity for the
OPCC to consult with a wide range of people.
