Tuesday 5/4/16 Havant Borough Talking Newspaper AGM

April 5, 2016


Tonight we were very pleased to be invited to the AGM of The Havant Borough Talking Newspaper. What a wonderful service they give to the blind and partially sighted among our residents. We had already been to their studio earlier in the year, so have been aware of the good work they do.

I talked to the attendees about the role of Mayor and the invitations that we receive. Also about The Community Chest that we are having for our charitable fundraising this year. I was presented with a lovely bouquet by Peter Loveridge the HBTN chairman at the end of the evening.

Monday 4/4/16 Further Cadet Interview

April 5, 2016

Today with Deputy Mayor Faith Ponsonby, I interviewed a further Cadet for the position of Mayor’s Cadet 2016-2017.

The standard of Cadets this year has been extremely high. With applicants from RAF, Army and Navy cadet units,  we may have to engage an extra one so as not to leave someone of a high standard out of the choices.

Monday 4/4/16 Gosport End of Term Civic Dinner

April 5, 2016

We were delighted to be invited to join The Harbour Mayors and others from across Hampshire, for dinner at Gosport Civic Offices.

The Mayor and Mayoress of Gosport called the evening their “End of Term Party”, which of course for us is only five weeks away now. We are hoping that we will all keep in touch with the members of our Chain Gang, as we have enjoyed their company very much this year.
