|Michael Fabricant participated in the Golden Jubilee Bower in Lichfield
yesterday (3rd June) by walking and running the full length of the parade
and collecting cash from onlookers who had visited Lichfield to witness the
Bower. But first, he attended the Ancient Court of Arraye in the Lichfield
Guildhall where Dozeners report on the security of the various wards of the
City. Before the ceremony began, he collected money from attendees at the
Court. In all, he collected 3 full buckets of cash for the Mayor and
Sheriff’s charities "and managed to stretch my right arm in the process.
Do you have any idea how heavy a bucket full of coins is?" he asks.
Though getting drenched by the near constant drizzle, Michael says:
