"Thank you for coming to Mayor Making tonight.
I would like to thank Cllr Gardner and Cllr Paul for sharing the role of Deputy Mayor last year. I would also like to thank my wife, Jackie, for being a very supportive Mayoress.
It has been quite a year as your Mayor. In September we had the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Of late the recent joys and celebrations of the coronation of King Charles III.
I look forward to the honour of continuing to represent the town as your Mayor and to hosting some more fundraising events which I hope to see you at.
This year I raised £2100 for my chosen charity, Northants Search and Rescue.
I have not chosen a particular charity this year but will be receiving grant applications from community groups and charities within the town for funds from the money I raise.
I will continue to try and be at the monthly Farmers Markets.
Once again, thank you all for coming, and enjoy the evening."
Cllr Nigel Brown
Mayor of Higham Ferrers 2023-24.
