Mayoral events - January 2019

January 2019

January began with a slower pace to recover from all the Christmas Events. Councillor Wattingham, attended the 1st year anniversary of Minds2Gether, and the Retirement Evensong Service for Archdeacon Paul Hughes.

 Councillor Wattingham also visited Houghton Regis Children’s Centre, Full House Theatre and the Stardust Theatre Group and presented certificates to all the children who took part in ‘A Celebration of Christmas’.

 It was Shepherd’s delight on Friday 25th January at the Charity Quiz Night (with Shepherd’s Pie Meal.) Over 100 people attended, which raised in excess of £860 for the Town Mayor’s charities.

The event was held at St Vincent’s Social Club, and the Shepherd’s Pie (which included lots of fresh vegetables, potatoes and gravy) was prepared by Cherish End Catering at St Vincent’s. The teams very much enjoyed their meal, and the evening was hailed as a big success.

The winning team was comprised of the Mayors and Mayoresses from Harpenden and Newport Pagnell, along with Councillors Gloria Martin and Terry Colbourne from Dunstable Town Council, and the team took away gold coloured medals. The runners up were from the SOS Bus and winners of the wooden spoons were from Houghton Regis Helpers.
