Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

DOZENS of party-go­ers flocked to a fundrais­ing night in hon­our of the mayor.

The Poyn­ton Town May­oral Party Night was held at Poyn­ton Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, and was in aid of the char­ity.

More than 60 peo­ple, in­clud­ing the mayor of Cheshire East coun­cil­lor Hilda Gad­dum, turned out for a night of mu­sic and fun fea­tur­ing lo­cal band Desert Wind.

Mayor Re­becca Hors­man-John­son hosted the night, which was com­plete with a buf­fet, raf­fle and char­ity auc­tion.

The cash raised, which is still be­ing counted, will go to­wards the on­go­ing re­fur­bish­ment of the cen­tre.

Parish coun­cil­lor Ge­off King, who is in­volved in the com­mu­nity cen­tre project, said: “To say that the Poyn­ton Town Mayor’s Party Night was a suc­cess is a bit of an un­der­state­ment.

“The mu­sic was sup­plied by Desert Wind, one of Poyn­ton’s favourite bands and fea­tur­ing our very own An­drew Lid­die.

“Tes­ta­ment to their pop­u­lar­ity has to be that fans trav­elled all the way from Ox­ford to see them per­form.

“Th­ese groupies even came equipped with mas­quer­ade masks to be sure they en­tered the spirit of the evening.

“As al­ways the band demon­strated why they are so pop­u­lar, with lovely vo­cal har­monies and great gui­tar so­los which – if proof were needed – demon­strated their com­plete mu­si­cal abil­ity.

“It was a fab­u­lous night for a great cause.”
