May 16th 3.00pm
All Saints Church, Evesham
I am no longer chairman of Wychavon District Council, however, I am still a councilor and I am an Evesham Town Councillor. I am here today, representing Evesham Town Council and supporting the New Mayor at his civic service. Tradition dictates that the service takes place , on the first available Sunday following Mayormaking. This year the Mayor’s chaplain is The Reverend Barry Collins, Vicar of St Peter’s, Bengeworth, Evesham.
Having met at Evesham Town Hall, we line up ready to process. Macebearers lead the Mayor, dignitaries and civic guests.

There were also contributions from local school’s and an excellent sermon by Barry Collins.
After the service, all attending were invited to tea and cakes.
A lovely service.
