The proposal was made by Cllr Karin Graham who said a lot of people took pleasure in the events and it was something she was happy to support.

Cllr Georgina Hill had concerns that the events committee had previously agreed that £2,000 was to be given. There were also concerns about budget overspend, especially with funding for Tweedmouth Feast still to be approved.

A further £1,000 was also awarded to Spittal Improvement Trust for the enhancement of shrubs and plants and general gardening work.
