Meeting a former Dr Who was a highlight
AFTER a wonderful weekend spent in our twin town of Bad Dürkheim, it was lovely to return to Wells.
Thursday saw one of the city's annual highlights, Night on the Town, for which we owe the organisers an enormous debt of gratitude. While the music and street stalls were of course of their usual high standard, I have to say that my personal highlight was being able to meet (and introduce on stage) former Dr Who, Colin Baker.
Following the opening of Night on the Town, I returned to the town hall for a brief meeting of the finance and general purposes committee, before joining the crowds once again outside and trying not to get too wet.
As honorary president of the operatic society I have promised to attend as many shows at the Little Theatre as possible, so on Saturday night I headed down the road for the final night of their latest production, The Pajama Game. Alisa Creaser, Nick Barlow and the whole cast put in excellent performances which almost made up for the trauma of the deputy mayor, Councillor Chris Briton, appearing trouserless halfway through the second act.

I've had to step away from Wells for a few days to attend a political event in Glasgow – which has given me the opportunity to talk to the head of policy at the National Associations of Local Councils about the work of Wells City Council. I seem to have agreed to do some writing for them about my role as mayor.
I look forward to returning to Wells on Wednesday (yesterday if you're reading this paper the day it comes out), and will be attending the Carers Open Day in the Town Hall on Thursday, as well as a couple of council meetings that night which will include the on-going issue of street naming.
