Bishop's Stortford's mayor cancels civic dinner because of coronavirus
Mayor of Bishop's Stortford Cllr Norma Symonds has cancelled her charity civic dinner because of the coronavirus crisis.
The black-tie event was due to take place at the Rhodes Arts Complex on Saturday, April 4, from 6.30pm with proceeds going to the Isabel Hospice.
A Scottish-theme was planned to reflect Cllr Symond's roots with a £40-a-head menu including crab bruschetta, salmon cut of beef cooked with red wine gravy or smoked loin of haddock and desserts including traditional Scottish trifle and tea or coffee with Scottish shortbread to finish.
Refunds are being offered to those who have already bought tickets but Cllr Symonds is hoping guests will gift the fee to the hospice.
