Nominations are now being accepted for this year’s Whitley Bay Town Cup.
North Tyneside Council presents the annual award to an individual or organisation in Whitley Bay who has played a part in hosting an outstanding event, or provided outstanding service for their community.
The history of the cup dates back to 1954 when it was introduced by the former Whitley Bay Council. It was donated to the council in its formation in 1974.
Councillors will consider the nominations in December, with the Chair of the Council, Cllr Tommy Mulvenna, presenting the award in January.
Last year’s cup was presented to Shikara restaurant in honour of the national recognition they had received and how the success of the business had helped raise the profile of Whitley Bay.
The closing date for nominations will be on 27 November 2018 and only individuals or organisations from the former borough of Whitley Bay can be considered for the award. Previous winners of the award include The Jam Jar Cinema, The BAY Foodbank and the Angels of the North.
