New Mayor throws the pennies!

THE PENNY THROWING ceremony 2010 took place this evening (20th May) immediately after Councillor Mrs Brenda Goldspink was apointed new town Mayor.

40 local children took part in the ‘civic scramble’ for the pennies (and larger coins!) ceremonially despatched by the Mayor and her party!

This really is a perculiar and unique tradition for the town – and lots of fun for the kids taking part.
