The Mayor and the skateboarding sheep

The Mayor of Southwark, a freeman of the City of London, exercised her right to drive a sheep across a City bridge today.

Her walk over the Millennium Bridge with a fibreglass sheep on a skateboard was sponsored to raise money for the Surrey Docks Farm.


Cllr Hilary Wines' arrival was announced by London's Town Crier Peter Moore. With the Mayor were children from Redriff School singing Professor Pip's Wibbly Wobbly Bridge song.
