Support The Queens

The power that gives the Parish Council the ability to make financial contributions to support the Queens comes from:

Local Government Act 1972

Section 145: Provision of entertainments

(1) A local authority may do, or arrange for the doing of, or contribute towards the expenses of the doing of, anything (whether inside or outside their area) necessary or expedient for any of the following purposes, that is to say—

(a) the provision of an entertainment of any nature or of facilities for dancing;

(b) the provision of a theatre, concert hall, dance hall or other premises suitable for the giving of entertainments or the holding of dances;
