THE HOTTEST DAYof the year so far brought hundreds of people to The Station in Hedon to enjoy the Mayor’s Garden Party on Monday 6th May.
But if you expected the Hedon Mayor to be parading about in the mayoral robes you would have been disappointed – he was much too busy serving burgers!
Mayor Jim Lindop, had swapped his distinctive Mayoral garb for a Hawaiian T-shirt – which was much more appropriate for his essential burger flipping role at the Charity event.
With temperatures hitting 21°C and appetites soaring too, the burger trade was brisk with some 100 being cooked, served and sold by lone-chef Mr Mayor!
All the proceeds from the burger sales, along with other fundraising activities during the afternoon, are going towards the Mayor’s designated good causes; Bowel Cancer UK and Macmillan Cancer Care.
