I took my family to Beckermet this afternoon to hear two singing groups associated with the Rosehill Theatre - the "RatPack" (boys) and "Lollipops" (girls) perform at a "teatime swing time" in aid of the Mayor of Copeland's charities.
The event was also supported by the Mayor of Millom and visiting mayors from several neighbouring boroughs. Despite the dreadful weather (which meant that proceedings had to be moved inside of the White Mare instead of taking place in a Marquee as originally planned) it was a very successful and enjoyable event.
The Ratpack and Lollipops will be performing again for the Mayor's charities as his Charity Ball on 10th October at Whitehaven Civic Hall and on the strength of this afternoon I can recommend that event.
While I'm giving out plugs for the Mayor of Copeland's charity events I should also mention that the Whitehaven Male Voice choir will be performing in Gosforth on 6th September.
Details of both events can be obtained from the Mayor's office at Copeland Council.
