Press coverage and other news . . .
Good coverage of the Mayor's Fundraiser in this week's Mersea Courier. There's a full write-up on page 4 (with colour photo featuring Ellie, John and Barry) and then a centre-page double spread of Chrissie's lovely monochrome shots from the evening (and a bit of a 'spot the hand' quiz, but no prizes).
All good publicity for the Session, the Coast Inn and the Mayor's charity fundraising initiative. We also have a new regular slot for the Session on the 'clubs' page, towards the back of the paper, which will give people who don't use the internet an opportunity to read about what's going on each month.
And there's also an ad for the Christmas Ceilidh! Which reminds me!!! Please buy your tickets for this SOON (from the MICA or at the Session this Thursday and next). We really need to sell as many tickets as we can in order to make a profit on this one, so please galvanise your family, friends and neighbours and support this festive community event ('by the community, for the community') if you possibly can. It'll be a very reasonably priced evening out, amongst a friendly crowd, and the perfect antidote to Strictly Come Dancing!
Finally, it's Mersea Lights Up this Friday (3rd Dec) at the MICA at 6.30 pm. Father Christmas will be arriving in his sledge, accompanied by a torchlit procession of children from the school. The Mayor will be switching on the lights. And Greg will be accompanying the community carol singing on his fantastic organ-effect midi accordion (which has to be heard to be believed!). There will be charity stalls, mulled wine and mince pies, too. So do come along and join in.
