The new Mayor of Melton, councillor Jeanne Douglas took part in the BBC Radio 1 game called ‘The Mayor of Where’ which was broadcast yesterday (Wednesday, June 17).
She joined Greg James on his afternoon show where the presenters have to guess where the special guest mayor is from.
Coun Douglas said: “They only gave me a day’s notice but I was thrilled to be asked. They asked me first what would be on the front of a postcard from our area and I said a church and an old restaurant which got them thinking.
“On the fourth question they asked if we had a local delicacy in the area. Not trying to give the game away too soon I said we were the Rural Capital of Food but they pressed me to name something so I said Stilton Cheese. They did manage to guess I was from Melton Mowbray in the end when I said pork pie. It was great fun to take part.”
