The Final Curtain May 8th

Today marked the end of the Mayoral year for Elaine and myself. At this morning’s meeting I reluctantly handed the mantle of being the Mayor to Paul Buckley, with his wife Jackie as Mayoress.

This last year has been a very busy and exciting one for us.

It has seen the Diamond Jubilee, the Olympics and Paralympics and the Freedom Ceremony in Havant Park for 4-7 Regiment, Royal Artillery.

These are just a few of the year’s special memories but, having attended over 350 engagements, there are many more that we will continue to talk about over the coming months and years.

We have had tremendous help from many people, and we could not have carried out our duties without them.

But now the Chain of Office has been passed over to Paul, and both of us would like to wish him and Jackie well for the next year and, when the time comes, we hope that their memories will be as sweet as ours.
