2016 was Billingham Town Council, Billingham Youth Council and Friends first ever time at Stockton International Riverside Festival and the SIRF Parade!!
This years theme was Mythical Lands & Fantastical Creatures, our group had the theme of Shangri-La and became Shangra-lions.
We all loved it!!
The Youth Council, aided by the expertise of our staff, was awarded £26,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund Young Roots to clean up the derelict Harrington's pond are and turn it into a wildlife reserve with safe public access.
