MAYOR'S CIVIC SERVICE

The Mayor's Civic Service was held on Sunday 8th October at St Mary's Church. The Mayor, Councillor Peter Tomas, and his invited guests processed from the Town Hall to the Church led by the Mayor's Sergeant and the impressive drummers from the Higham Ferrers Ranger Cadet band. The Mayor was joined by the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Jason Smithers, his fellow Councillors and Local Council Dignitaries. The Bedesmen and past Mayors were represented with the Higham Ferrers Brownies and District Guides joining the procession and service. Refreshments were served in the Bede House after the service for all those attending.

Following the service the Mayor said 'I was pleased to see so many people at the service. The highlight of the service for me was to present the ribbons to the children of the choir to mark their achievements in singing. I was pleased to work with Canon Stainer in organising the service and it was good to see so many Local Council Dignitaries in attendance.'

The Ranger Cadet band who were in attendance are looking for new members. The Cadets meet every Tuesday evening 6.30 to 8.30pm in the Lancaster Suite at the Ferrers School. The Cadets are open to boys and girls age 8-17. For further information email rangercadetsnorthants@gmail.com or phone Mr John Mander 01933 412099.
