GUESTS at a lunch hosted by Cllr Frank Silver, Town Mayor of Great Dunmow, were treated to a real thriller at Foakes Hall on Sunday.
The function was held by Cllr Silver to say thank you to the people who have supported him in his year as town mayor. Entertainment was supplied by some of the town's talented young performers.
In his thank you speech, Cllr Silver said: "There are so many people who have helped me during my year as Dunmow's mayor and I feel that I can't say a big enough thank you."
Opening the entertainment were 75 dancers from Scene II Theatre School who performed a routine to Michael Jackson's Thriller. They danced not just on stage but also among the seated diners.
