Friday night saw this year Mayoral Reception take place at Buxton’s Pavilion Garden’s.
The ‘do’ which takes the form of a sit down meal, is a bit expensive at £20 + a ticket plus your travel, but is always worth attending to show support for whoever the current Mayor is.
Anyway for Friday’s event I had travelled straight from work and was awaiting the arrival of the rest of the group in the Old Clubhouse just across the road from the Opera House, when whilst part way through my first pint, something past the pub window.
At first I thought perhaps the larger was a bit stronger than expected, but then the other Cllr Mckeown arrived and confirmed that no I wasn’t seeing things or suffering from the alcohol, I had just seen the MP’s wife, scoot past the pub, down the road, in the dark on one of those little fold up scooter’s. Certainly not something you see every day !
