The Mayor of Sudbury visits the LeeStock festival site
On Sunday 29th May 2011, Sudbury’s then new mayor came to meet the LeeStock team and take a look around the festival grounds.
Anthony Platt, who was voted in as Sudbury’s Mayor on 10th May 2011, was taken on a tour through the pub, stalls, fields and even backstage so he could see the amount of time, effort and dedication by all the LeeStock team and everyone who contributed.
Mayor Platt observed the help we received including the staging, sound equipment and lighting, banners, artwork and turf not to mention all the help by The White Horse staff and the amazing bands who had given up their time to play at LeeStock.
Unfortunately the Mayor was unable to see the whole event but he was very surprised and impressed at the size of an event which had been created at The White Horse in memory of our friend, Lee Dunford.
Mayor Platt was able to supply us with some very useful information, which will help us in the future with regards to the funding of LeeStock and also invited us to make a presentation to the Sudbury Council before the next festival.
This will enable us to show the Council all the work that goes into our Festival and the ties it has with our local community. We also received a personal donation from the Mayor and we look forward to working with him at future LeeStock events.
