This afternoon I attended the Christmas Party organised by the Rotary Club of Bury for a group of Senior Citizens held at the Walshaw Sports Club. I was responsible for quite a bit of the organisation this year and so I was quite relieved that overall the event passed off quite successfully.
The Mayor Councillor Sheila Magnall attended the event and the Senior Citizens really appreciated the fact that they were able to have the chance to meet the towns first citizen. Sometimes those of us who are involved in politics and frequently come into contact with the Mayor can forget how significant an event it is for so many people to have the chance to chat with our town’s Mayor. The guests were served with a Christmas dinner and then enjoyed three games of bingo and a performance of songs and carols performed by the pupils from Tottington High School. On the way home guests were given a Christmas Card and a box of chocolate biscuits.
