Calling ex-Londoners from Newham living in the Budleigh area

























'Buses' fan Sir Robin Wales, Mayor of Newham

Are you a cradle-born Cockney with a connection to Canning Town? Or just a new arrival from the Borough of Newham, which covers that part of London?  Would you by any chance be a fan of On the Buses or The Rag Trade?

I’m seeking a suitable candidate for the role of representative of the Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales, at Fairlynch Museum’s Exhibitions Preview evening on Thursday 24 March.

Invited guests will be able to view the 2016 exhibition ‘Our Little Clown’, an event which which will mark the centenary of the birth of the actor and entertainer Reg Varney, who retired to Budleigh Salterton.

You don’t have to speak Cockney, or even wear a mayoral chain. You might just have lived for a short time in Newham, or even better in Canning Town before moving to East Devon. I’m just looking for someone who would be willing to represent  the Borough and who would enjoy reading a message in public from Sir Robin Wales, Newham’s Mayor, to our guests at the Preview Evening.

Sir Robin told me that he is indeed a ‘Buses’ fan. Sadly he is unable to attend the event in Budleigh.
