The event, which is organised by the town council, aims to honor and recognise individuals or businesses who contribute significantly to the community.

However, concerns have been raised regarding the cost of hosting the event and whether the expenses are justified.

Councillor White will lead a discussion at the meeting, where town councillors will review the budget and expenditure related to the Celebration of Newtown event.

The agenda item will prompt a debate on whether the council's decisions regarding spending on the event are appropriate.

According to documents, the town council spent £5,896.32 for the last Celebration of Newtown event.

This budget covered expenses such as venue hire, meals for attendees, photography services, trophies, awards, and other items necessary for the event.
