Wednesday evening was an evening to hopefully swell the coffers for our mayoral charities.
What a wonderful evening it was. We first of all welcomed our guests into the bar where everyone mingled. It was great to see new friends and old friends celebrate this evening with Blind Dave who was entertaining us later.
When the caterers were ready we enjoyed a great meal, but the highlight of the evening was Dave and what a performance he gave.
Friday night, as we had a previous engagement I asked the Deputy Cllr Vic Sylvester and his wife Carole to stand in for me and we would get their as soon as possible.
When we got there it was when Helesa were performing, two young ladies who got our feet tapping, and weren’t they good.
Next on was a young group of teenagers by the name of the Outsiders, what talent they had. Mark my words, remember that name, they will go far.
Will Shannon brought up the rear, what a great voice he had. We were bowled over by the talent, home-grown in Tipton, what a night we had.
What must be a first, recording material no less, was the Leader Councillor Cooper with a backing group of members of the Council giving a rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “I did it my way”. I don’t think I’ll be the same again.
I made a point of getting on the dance floor with Suzanne and Geoff to thank them both, without them this evening would have not taken place.
Many thanks for all that were there and for the generous donations.
Thursday evening, a little before seven our first guests arrived we were waiting to greet them. It was to be a very informal relaxing and enjoyable time shared with many friends and distinguished guests.
