Mayor’s ball axed

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE Mayor of Peter­bor­ough has pulled the plug on her char­ity-aid­ing spring dance just days be­fore the event was due to take place.

Coun­cil­lor Paula Thacker says that per­sonal rea­sons have forced her to re­quest that the dance sched­uled to take place on Satur­day be can­celled.

She has promised that any­one who bought tick­ets for the event at Peter­bor­ough Town Hall, to raise money for her two cho­sen char­i­ties, would re­ceive a full re­fund.

She said: “The decision to can­cel was mine and it was made for per­sonal rea­sons. I am a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed.”

Cllr Thacker would not say what the per­sonal rea­sons were.

She added: “I have tele­phoned ev­ery­one who bought tick­ets to tell them it has been can­celled. If they have not had a re­fund it will ar­rive in the next day or two.”

Cllr Thacker, whose term of of­fice runs out on May 23, said: “There is still my duck race and two more lunches to at­tend be­fore the end of my term as mayor.”
