Sutton Mayor’s Fundraising Dinner at House of Commons

My husband & I had a very pleasant evening starting with a tour of the Houses of Parliament followed by dinner with the Mayor in the House of Commons Members Room.

 

A number of mayors from other boroughs attended the dinner together with our local MPs Paul Burstow & Tom Brake. I was seated next to the Mayor of Merton who advised me that he was the youngest Mayor of Merton in its entire history. However he was not the youngest mayor currently standing, that honour had gone to a different borough.

 

After dinner we had the pleasure of Jeremy Vines giving us a talk about some of his experiences as a journalist and his views about how he believes all politics are local politics.

 

All funds raised by the evening will go to our Mayor’s Charity the Royal Marsden Hospital Wolfson Childrens and Adolescent Unit, Sutton.
