It’s been a busy time for Crowle mayor, Councillor Paul McCartan, who told fellow councillors that he’d been delighted to represent them at several events.

From having a ‘Mayoress for the day’ in BBC Radio 2’s Sally Traffic at the Rescue Day to a coffee and crafts event at St Oswald’s Church and winning a litre of whisky at the Over-60s market, he said there was a lot going on in the town.

“The Rescue Day is the largest of its kind in the world, and brings a lot of people into the town,” he said.

Coun McCartan said he’d also taken part in an ‘extreme challenge’ road race over a five-mile course running through mud, a lake, and over a series of straw bales.

“It was great fun – even though I got over all the big obstacles, but then tripped over a tiny piece of metal and cut my knee.”

He said Crowle Show had been quieter than in recent years, but felt this had been the same for all such shows this year. He urged other town councillors to help the council have a presence at events in the future.

He also took part in a competition at Crowle Bowls Club, and said: “It was great; I really enjoyed it. I suggest everyone should give it a go; you’ll get hooked.”
