Falmouth's mayor hosts Champagne lunch for Queen's birthday

First published in News

Falmouth’s mayor, Geoffrey Evans, laid on a Champagne lunch to celebrate the Queen’s 88th birthday last week.

Although Her Majesty did not actually turn 88 until Monday, Mr Evans held his tribute to the monarch a week earlier.

With a menu that included salmon, ham and strawberry cake, Mr Evans welcomed his guests to the council chamber on the first floor of the Municipal Buildings.

Among those enjoying the mayor’s hospitality were former High Sheriff of Cornwall, James Williams and his wife, Sarah; A&P Falmouth’s managing director, Peter Child and his wife, Heather; former town clerk of both Falmouth and Penryn, Eric Dawkins and his wife, Frances; Penryn councillor Vicky Bennett and John Kirby; Inspector Steve Lenney and Falmouth Art Gallery director, Henrietta Boex.

Rear Admiral Sir Robert Woodard, former Commander of the Royal Yacht Britannia, and his wife, had also been invited, but were unable to attend.

Did they give the leftovers to a food bank? I've never been so amazed at such crassness.

No disrespect to the Queen but it sounds as if this was used as an excuse for a booze up. Congratulations to those who didn't attend.
