MAY I say thank you to everyone who took part in the ‘raise your voices’ event, held at St Anne’s Church, Sutton. It was a fantastic evening and all the choirs who took part certainly raised their voices and helped to raise £600 for the mayor’s charity appeal.

TO the gentleman at Asda who, when I pointed out he had parked in a parent and child space without a child, swore and asked me if I was "a traffic warden" before intelligently ending the conversation by sticking two fingers up.
