    This has always been my favourite. Naughty man Glyn! :-)
  • I didn't realise you had form. Keep up the good work!

    I know we don't do hashtags on this forum but I thought #dontgivemethehorn would be an excellent rallying cry for those that are kept awake/woken up by the bloody trains. 
  • Am I right in thinking that the Mayor's one ball will be his testimonial?  :D
  • Yes - and it needs your support!
  • The other, is in..............................

    This event is now listed as 'The Mayor's "Alternative Ball"' (behave!).  It will still take place on 4th March 8pm to midnight and will feature live music, dancing, bar and charity raffle with the amended price of £10. Posh clobber optional. There is an event page on Facebook

    It would be lovely if as many people as possible could take the time out to share this and support local charities via the Mayor's Fund - a positive use of everyone's community spirit and energy online. 
  • Band playing is the groovetails, whom are told are a cracking band, by a man that knows!
  • In the words of Holland Dozier Holland (Reach out) I'll be there!
  • @Glyn sorry to be a total pain but could the first post possibly be edited to reflect the new "Mayor's Alternative Ball" event?

    Going to be at the station later to watch the rugby, with tickets for this, if you want one.

    Just spotted that the Groovetails have a website, and various bits on Youtube and social media.



  • A bump for Saturday evening, with an updated flyer from Mr Mayor.

    Go on sister, have yourself a ball, etc.

  • If I wasn't double booked I'd be there. The band looks a goodun.
  • There will be tickets for sale on the door tonight.

    Dress code is optional but plenty of people are dressing up. Don't be shy!
