THESE VIDEOS record the Hedon Penny Throwing event that took place last night. We believe that this is the first time that the traditional annual event, led by Hedon’s newly elected Mayor, has ever been filmed in this way to keep for public posterity!
The footage is raw and unedited – but we hope the videos give a flavour of the event. Congratulations to Councillor Jim Lindop on becoming Hedon’s 665th Mayor and to Councillor John Dennis on becoming Deputy Mayor.
In this video the Mayor has to cope when the Council runs out of pennies!!
