 Huddersfield residents enjoy a different night out with Kirklees Mayor!

Huddersfield residents enjoy a different night out with Kirklees Mayor!

KIRKLEES Mayor’s Dinner invitation is a huge success as Cynthia gets to chat with one of her heroes, former Giants player, Eorl Crabtree.

After receiving a surprise invite to the Mayor’s Civic Dinner last month, Aden View staff and Cynthia, a resident, were delighted to accept. 

Activity Coordinator Lauren, Domestic Assistant, Demi, joined Cynthia for an evening quite different from their usual nights out!  

Upon arrival, they were all greeted by the Mayor and Mayoress of Kirklees; they spent several minutes talking to Cynthia and answering her questions.

The group sat at a table with a range of interesting people:

  • An ex-chancellor
  • A singer from the Honley Male Voice Choir
  • Two Forget-Me-Not Children’s Hospice employees 

The guests were treated to a delicious three-course meal during the evening whilst serenaded by a brass band. 

Mayors within the Kirklees area also circulated, talking to all of the guests.

All these dignitaries were very exciting; however, Cynthia’s favourite moment was meeting Eorl Crabtree, a local Rugby League player!

Cynthia chatted away and asked him how he was doing and whether he was enjoying the event, and even managed to get a photo with him. 

As the trio was leaving, one of the event planners caught up with them and handed Cynthia the lily that was the centrepiece of their table, now standing proudly in her room.
