FORMER Bridgwater Mayor Graham Granter scrubbed up well despite being thrown in the stocks at the Sydenham House summer fair in June 2009.

Cllr Granter was on hand to open the event, which raised more than £1,250 for the home.

The money was set to be spent on day trips and entertainment for residents at the care home.

Organisers said the day was a huge success despite the rain, and scores of local people turned up to enjoy the proceedings throughout the afternoon.

Pictured with Cllr Granter are home manager Jenette Martin and three army cadets taking part in the soaking.
