Middlesbrough Mela has applied for funding to support this year’s Mela which takes place on 17/18 August 2019 in Albert Park, Middlesbrough.
This event attracts over 10,000 people over the weekend and brings together local community groups from diverse backgrounds.
It is a key priority of the PCC and Middlesbrough Borough Council to promote community cohesion and a sense of belonging through the participatory work and to sustain this through further recruitment for other outdoor events in the town.
The PCC will host a stall during the event to provide crime prevention advice and equipment and to promote initiatives such as hate crime reporting.
The Mela supports the PCC’s objectives of Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer and Securing the Future of our Communities
