Presentation of Millenium Cup and Mayoress Cups 2023
At the Council meeting on Monday 26 June the Town Mayor Cllr Kristian Bright undertook the annual presentation of the cups in recognition of individuals and community organisations who in the opinion of the Town Council have made a significant contribution to promoting Broadstairs and St Peter’s and the wellbeing of the local community.
This year the Mayoress cup was presented to Broadstairs Firework Events represented by Simon Abra.
Simon is a founder member of Broadstairs Fireworks Events and was a key organiser of the 2023 coronation celebrations working alongside Town Council staff, councillors and other volunteers.
Simon also produces the Isle magazine, and assists with the annual Water Gala and the four summer fireworks displays which bring many people into the town.
