At his 'Mayor Making' Inauguration Ceremony on 13th May 2019 held in the Council Chamber at the Town Hall Cllr Chris O'Rourke stated:

"It is an honour for me to be elected as your Mayor of Higham Ferrers, a role which as far as I know, has been around for about 700 years.

I have lived in Higham Ferrers for over 50 years, growing up here along with my 9 siblings and parents, firstly on the farm which is now the Queensway estate. I went to the infant and junior schools and for some years worked in the High Street, so I have seen the town grow over the years.

I have many events planned throughout the year to raise money for my chosen charities and look forward to seeing many of you at these events.

I shall be present at every Farmer's Market to promote events in the Town and my own fundraising events. I shall be there to talk to people about any ideas or even concerns they have. I would also like to encourage you to come to Council meetings, as I'm not so sure that everyone realises that they are able to attend.

It promises to be a very busy and exciting year for me, and my Mayoress Kathleen Meredith and I are both looking forward to it."
