 PRIDE IN PRIORSWOOD

What is Pride In Priorswood (PiP)?

Pride in Priorswood (PiP) is the annual calendar of events run by the North Taunton Partnership (NTP) for the benefit of the people of North Taunton and to raise funds for the NTP. These events happen every year and usually include the following:

Crime Prevention Day – February half term, Tuesday.

World Book Day – First Thursday in March.

Spring Bazaar – A Friday in April.

Summer Youth Activities – Five Tuesdays during the school summer holidays.

Autumn Bazaar - A Friday in September.

Halloween Event - October half term, Friday

Christmas Market - First Tuesday in December.

How much is it to take part?

All our PiP events are free entry to residents of North Taunton. At the summer activities we charge for a couple of activities such as the bouncy castle and face painting, but this is heavily discounted and kept as low as possible. All other activities are free.

If the events are free, how does the NTP raise money? 

Money is raised at events by the sale of cakes, tea and coffee, bric-a-brac, books and raffles. Donation buckets are also used at events.

What does the NTP use the money raised for? 

All money raised by the NTP at PiP events or during its day to day activities is used to run the Partnership’s programme of activities, including the running of the Priorswood Community Centre. The money raised during the summer activities is used towards the next year’s activities. The NTP is a charity and as such has to rely on the money it raises to fund its programme. It costs around £60,000 to £70,000 each year to run the Community Centre and our programme of activities each year.  Grant funding is used to raise extra funds, but this is not a guaranteed source of income. 

Can I get involved in PiP? 

Yes, definitely. The NTP is always in need of help at its events, especially the summer activities. The events couldn’t take place without our dedicated team of volunteers who help to run stalls, make cakes, make tea and coffee or help out with activities. 

Who pays for the events? 

It costs around £10,000-£12,000 each year to put on the summer activities alone and this is paid for mainly by grants. The staff at the NTP have to find enough funding each year to cover all the activities. Activities can only be booked if enough funding has been secured. The NTP may set aside some of its own funds to cover any shortfall if it is able to.
