Bonny Baby Competition & Meeting with Foreign Students


On Wednesday 30/7/14 I had the unenviable task of judging Maldon’s ‘Bonny Baby’ in the Baby Show at the Lower Plume School! It was a very well attended event and a special feature of Maldon’s busy Carnival Week.

Great War Commemoration Rehearsal & Plume Prize Giving


Things continue to move on a pace and, over the last few days, as well as attending normal meetings of the council (particularly Environment and Planning), I took part in a rehearsal for our Great War Anniversary Commemoration (to be held on 3/8/14), had an enjoyable evening at the Plume School Prize-Giving and was interviewed about the role of Mayor on Saint FM. Ahead of us we have Carnival Week, which promises to be very special indeed. There are also other engagements planned which I will report on soon.


Mayor of Maldon Charity Quiz Night


As well as attending meetings of the RNLI and Maldon District Scouts and taking part in Maldon Court School’s enjoyable prize-giving , since my last blog my first charity event has taken place. It was held on the evening of Friday 11th July and was a quiz organised by our Deputy Mayor, Mark Heard. We had a fantastic turn out with 14 teams competing.

Kwick Cricket Competition & Maldon Air Training Corps Visit


My time as your Mayor continues to be a busy, but hugely rewarding experience. On Friday 4/7/14, I visited Maldon Cricket Club’s ‘Drapers Farm’ ground for the schools Kwik Cricket competition. I was pleased to stand with David Stephenson, the headteacher of The Plume Academy, as he presented prizes to the participating schools. Continuing with the educational theme, I attended Maldon Court School’s Summer Fete on 6/7/14 and enjoyed drawing the raffle for them.


East London Cabbies Outing


Cabbies Day 2014

On Wednesday 2/7/14 the same Mayoral “team” welcomed the East London Cabbies Outing. We waved them in as they drove down High Street. It was spectacular sight as usual and the weather was very kind to us. The children looked so happy and the drivers and hard working members of our community make it a very special day for them. Many other engagements are ahead!
