A message from the Mayor

As I started to write this message I heard of the passing of our dear friend and colleague Fred Angove. Fred’s contribution to the life of the town and our Town Council will long be remembered, he was a long standing Mace Bearer and had always been a shoulder to lean on during my Mayoralship. His dedication and support for the elderly of this town is immeasurable. Fred was very upset this November that he was not well enough to take his place in the procession on Remembrance Day. He also missed the remembrance evening at The Cottage Hospital and the wonderful concert at St Michael's Church. Our love and thoughts go to Edna and the family.

As we look forward to celebrating Christmas, with the excellent Christmas Light switch-on last week and the lantern parade on the 13th December, let’s think of those that we have lost and offer help to those individuals and families that need our support.
