Some famous faces graced Stamford’s annual civic reception as guests of the mayor.
Coun Brian Sumner hosted his dinner at the newly refurbished town hall in St Mary’s Hill.
The black tie event supported the mayor’s charities, which are Stamford Street Pastors, Stamford Foodbank, The Evergreen Care Trust, Teenzone and Stamford Parkinson’s Care Group. Money was also raised for Stamford-based Mutts Nutts Dog Rescue.
And actors Kenneth Cranham, Paul Freeman and Ron Cook gave some added prestige with their literary interludes between courses.
Several businesses sponsored the dinner.
