Newbury’s 2023 ‘Mayor Making’

Published 25 May 2023

Having spent the last year as the mayor’s cadets, which involved them giving up their own time to support the mayor at numerous events, Sgts Tomoya (13C4) and Rose (13D1) received their certificates from outgoing mayor, Gary Norman, in recognition of the service given.

As last year, five cadets volunteered their services to assist with the whole event. Following a briefing in the Town Hall, various items had to be taken to the Corn Exchange in readiness for the ceremony. Part way through the ceremony, all began the process of setting up the buffet at St Nicolas’ Church Hall before two returned to the Corn Exchange in readiness to return items to the Town Hall at the end of the ceremony.

While most of those in the Corn Exchange went on to attend a service at St Nicolas, cadets were able to complete the setting up of the church hall and enjoy a taste of the buffet before the guests arrived. The final tasks involved clearing away all that had been used at the buffet and returning yet more items to the Town Hall. My thanks to cadet Corporal Isabella Warner and cadets George Berry, Sophie Bunce, Ella Plowman and Sophia Warner for volunteering to assist with this event.
