Haywards Heath Town Mayor, joined local councillors and award-winning local vet, Julia from the Mewes Vets, at a fundraising fun day to help support the free services provided by the Bentswood Community Hub.

Town Mayor, Cllr Howard Mundin, comments:

“What a wonderful show of community spirit there was at this event and thank you to all the volunteers and residents who came along to support this day. It was so marvellous to see the neighbourhood coming together to support the wonderful community hub in our town and how brilliant that they raised a whopping £4,301.43 on the day.

I really had such a fun time being one of the judges for the dog show at the event, together with my fellow councillor Clare Cheney and Julia from the Mewes Vets and my huge congratulations to young Keisha whose cute doggie Isla won ‘best in show’ on the day. It was also great to see our local PCSO’s joining in the fun and I would personally like to thank Haywards Heath Town Councillor, Rachel Cromie and her family and local resident Anna Sharkey for the tremendous work and support in putting this community fun day together.”

Anna Sharkey added

“We are so grateful to all our volunteers, young and old who worked so hard to give the community a great day out, you were all truly amazing. My thanks to our Town Mayor, local Councillors and Julia from the Mewes Vets for your great judging, plus a tremendous thank you to our evening karaoke stars for providing us with awesome music to wind the evening down!”
