Guests get glamorous at Civic Ball

COUNCILLORS, special guests and the community were dressed to the nines for a glamorous Civic Ball in Uppermill.

This year’s event, with a Scottish theme as it was held on Burns Night, saw about 80 guests gather for a mouth-watering dinner and entertainment.

The catering was served up by Outside No 11 before guests danced the night away to The Cornerstone Band.

There was a Loyal Toast proposed by MP Debbie Abrahams, who attended with husband John, and a toast to Saddleworth and the Parish Council proposed by Cllr John Hudson, accompanied by wife Kathleen.

There were also addresses by Saddleworth Parish Council chairman Cllr Rob Knotts, who attended with wife Lesley, and by the Mayor of Oldham Cllr Javid Iqbal, accompanied by his wife Mayoress Tasleem Akhtar.

The Mayor of Mossley Cllr Irene Raddings and husband Stuart also enjoyed the night, along with other councillors from nearby councils, and guests.

Cllr Paul Fryer, vice-chair of Saddleworth Parish Council, attended wearing a kilt while his wife Aileen was similarly dressed in eye-catching Scottish dress.

Cllr Fryer said: “Cllr Knotts and Lesley, our clerk Pam and Hazel have done a magnificent job in putting on what was a very enjoyable night.”
