Mayor's special sports dinner

Cllr and Mrs Blackburn.1 February


Tickets for the Mayor’s special sporting themed dinner at Scarborough Rugby Club, on Saturday 10 March are still available.


Dennis Taylor, the former legendary snooker player who is well known for his sense of humour and oversized spectacles together with Martin Gold, a renowned stand-up comedian have been secured as guest speakers at the event and will be providing excellent entertainment and laughter for guests.


Dennis Taylor is looking forward to visiting Scarborough and making the guests chuckle, he said:


“I am really looking forward to coming to Scarborough and meeting up with one of my favourite comedians, Martin Gold, on what I am sure will be a great night.”


The Mayor of the borough of Scarborough, Cllr John Blackburn, has always been a huge supporter of sports as it is one thing that brings the local community together and he is working with Sam Greetham, International Swimming Coach and 2012 Olympics Organiser, and local business trader, Steve Hamblett of S H Leisure on arrangements for this one-off event.


The Mayor encourages people to grasp the opportunity to attend this special dinner:


“It would be great to see as many sporting people of our borough come together for this one-off special event, we hope to raise as much money as possible for the Mayoress’ Community Fund from sale of the tickets which goes to help support local organisations.”


As well as the outstanding entertainment on offer the ticket price of £35 also includes a four course dinner and everyone is welcome to attend the event, although sport themed the invitation is open to all - including groups, singles, couples and of course the ladies.


An auction will be held after the dinner with two fabulous prizes on offer. Brian Davidson of Crown Paints, a keen supporter of civic events has very kindly and generously donated a fantastic prize for the evening’s auction of two hospitality tickets at a Manchester United game next season, including a champagne lunch and free drinks during the interval and afterwards. Also to be auctioned off will be a snooker cue signed by guest speaker, legendary snooker player, Dennis Taylor.
