Fancy a cuppa with the Mayor?

The Mayor of Peterborough has just announced a series of afternoon teas in aid of his charities.

The first will be held on Thursday 18 August between 1-3pm at the Town Hall.

There will be a small entrance charge, refreshments, a raffle, bric-a-brac stalls and the opportunity for a spot of dancing.

To help raise money for the Mayor's charities you can also donate books, bric-a-brac items or even bake a cake for the home produce stall.

The Mayor's charities are the Salvation Army Good Neighbours Scheme, the Royal Air Force Association and the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Councillor David Sanders, the Mayor of Peterborough, said: "It would be great to see lots of residents at these events to help support my charities for the year.

"I'd be very grateful to anyone able to donate items for the stalls. With the new series of the Great British Bake Off just a few weeks away some freshly baked cakes would go very well with a cup of tea."

Afternoon teas will also be held on 20 October and 17 November at Peterborough Town Hall.
