Nearing The End May 3rd

During the first two or three weeks of May the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth and all of the Hampshire Mayors and Chairmen come to the end of their year in office.

This year the Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Derek Burke, decided to hold a farewell dinner in the Southampton Guildhall. All were invited but, due to other engagements, not all were able to attend. There were however, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, six Mayors and Mayoresses and three Chairmen with their consorts.

We were all asked to wear our robes, so that a group picture could be taken on the Guildhall steps, much to the bemusement of passers by!

Following this, we went inside for an enjoyable evening full of reminiscing over the year’s events.
