The event was well attended and Councillors were thanked for their kind financial help towards the Coronation Street Party being held in May.
They also enjoyed a series of presentations from the volunteers including information on the history of the BIC, current funding, the rebranding to Love Budleigh and plans for the future. They were impressed by the BIC's new website and how this gave local organisations the opportunity to promote their businesses and to showcase events to both local people and visitors to the town.
Volunteers emphasised how much they enjoyed helping at the Centre, meeting new people and feeling part of the local community and groups.
The evening concluded with some questions from the Councillors who understood that although volunteers keep it open, regular funding was required for a more secure future.
