Mayor's Charity Ball

This is Patricia Hobby, our current Mayor, with her son at the Mayor's Charity Ball.

Each Mayor has their own style, and next year Abingdon could have the youngest ever Mayor if Duncan Brown, Pat's deputy, takes over. So who knows, next year it could be the Mayor's Charity Rave - or whatever young people do nowadays.

The evening included a good meal from the caterers at the Guildhall, a speech by an ex Dalton Barracks commander, and dancing to the music of Catch 22, and a raffle.

Prizes were donated by local businesses. I won a ten pound voucher to spend at Badgers Menswear. I did pop in there the other day to ask about suits, but was told the only place that did suits in Abingdon was Tesco.

Whatever happened to Burton's , Hornes and Ciro Citterio?

I'm loving the idea of the Mayors charity rave.
