Bridlington mayor Cllr Cyril Marsburg and the town council’s civic officer Abbi Grosse will complete a parachute jump on Friday.

Cllr Marsburg said: “We have been planning this for many months but the time has finally arrived and we are both nervous about it now it is here.”
The mayor is raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society during his year in office and has already collected more than £3,000 for his chosen charity during his term.

This week’s skydive will be his third, but it will be Abbi’s first time.

Donations can be given at the town council office in Quay Road or online at
