This year’s Exmouth Mayor’s Ball has been cancelled.

The charity event had been due to take place at Ocean on the seafront on March 4, in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.

The Mayor of Exmouth, Councillor Brian Cole, said: “Due to a lack of support, I regretfully have to announce that the 2017 Mayor’s Ball has been cancelled. Despite receiving support from local businesses, there has not been enough interest to enable me to ensure that I could hold the ball without running at a loss.

“I am not prepared to risk council funds on a venture which would involve a loss to the town. Thank-you to all those businesses and residents who have supported this venture.”
