Freak Out

This evening saw the opening of the Mitcham Status Fair on Three Kings Piece by the Mayor Cllr Geraldine Stanford. This is a fair that has been held in Mitcham for over a hundred years and its opening involves the turning of a key. With a number of fun fair rides at the event, I went on the Carousel and then decided to go on the freak out ride, this was certainly a white knuckle experience and involved going high in the air and practically going down vertically. It was certainly an experience and I'm glad I had nothing to eat before going on the ride, certainly one of the wackier things I’ve done in my four years as a councillor.

I would like to express my appreciation to Cliff Iles and his team from Merton Council along with the fair organiser Jimmy Botton who puts on a splendid event every year.
