'Mayors day out was memorable day for all who took part in it. It is an important event on the Mayors calendar, greatly appreciated and looked forward to by the people who take part in it. I have since met many of our residents who took part in this trip and they were so grateful and delighted to have had such a wonderful day out. My wife and I throughly enjoyed the day, we had the best fish and chips ever and we had wonderful entertainment during the the trip and in Great Yarmouth. It gives me such a great pleasure to see so many of our residents having such a lovely time' - George Pippas, Former Mayor of Cambridge
