The Whitley Bay Town Cup was established in 1954 by the former Whitley Bay Borough Council who awarded the trophy annually to any individual or organisation that had taken part in or brought about an outstanding event during the 12 months ending in September each year.
The Cup was donated to North Tyneside Council in 1974. The original terms and conditions continued to apply, with a Sub-Committee comprising of all Members representing the former Borough of Whitley Bay meeting annually to consider the nominations for the Cup.
In March 1993, the Council's Leisure and Tourism Committee agreed to expand the criteria to also recognise meritorious service by an individual or organisation over a number of years.
Nominations are now being sought for the award of the Whitley Bay Town Cup for 2019. Nominations can be submitted by completing the attached form. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (0191) 643 5313.
The Whitley Bay Town Cup Sub-committee will meet in December to consider nominations and award the Cup. The sub-committee is made up of Elected Members that represent the following wards: Monkseaton North, Monkseaton South, Collingwood, Whitley Bay and St. Mary’s.
The deadline for nominations is Wednesday 27th November 2019.
