In the Autumn of 2015 a small group decided to get together to see if the Clare Community Association could be revived. A body has now been formed that will benefit every resident and business in Clare and the surrounding area, not just organising community events but being able to advise and help others who want to put on events.
The primary aims are to be open and transparent, and to get as many people and sections of the community involved as possible.
CCA organised its first major event last year: the Party in the Park in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday: 200 volunteers…..a special tea for pensioners in the Town Hall…..a host of stalls, performances, animals, vintage cars, fancy dress in the style of the 20s, food and drink, music, dance, games, fire & rescue demo, readings, dog competition, art work, most within the Castle’s Outer Bailey…..an untold number of visitors – a phenomenal success.
The Town Council offers a heartfelt thanks to all those volunteers & participants, young & old, businesses, groups & families whose contributions made the Party in the Park such a success. Give yourselves a hug, a pat on the back, a kiss, a glass in the hand, a sigh of relief, a standing ovation…….thank you!
The next Party in the Park will be on 1st July. Plans are well underway; questions and support offers should be made to the CCA through their website.
