Burnham Week & West Mersea Regatta

My latest engagements have had a distinctly maritime feel about them.

Burnham Week

During the evening of Friday 29/8/14 I was invited to a cocktail party at the Burnham Sailing Club by the current Commodore, my old mate ‘Digger’ Harden. It was a great way to celebrate Burnham Week.

Council Meetings & Community Engagament

Having got through a very busy period that included the Carnival and the Great War Remembrance Service, it has been back to “business as usual”. My time has mainly been taken up with meetings – but very worthwhile ones.

Maldon's 100th Carnival Procession

What lovely weather we had for Maldon’s 100th Carnival Procession! I started the day by welcoming my invited guests at the Carnival Luncheon.

It was then time to put the Mayor’s robe on and join our Honorary Town Crier.

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.

Maldon & Heybridge Horticultural Summer Show

I have mentioned the wonderful achievements at the Maldon & Heybridge Horticultural Society’s Summer Show, held on Saturday 26/7/14. Here are some pictures of Christine with a display that was presented to her and me awarding prizes to two of the winners – Chris Cork and Joe Cook.

Carnival Queen and Court Crowning & Other Engagements

What a busy weekend! Christine and myself thoroughly enjoyed presenting the prizes at the Maldon & Heybridge Horticultural Society Summer Show on Saturday (26/7/14). We also marked the start of the Great War commemoration by giving a talk at the excellent Combined Military Services Museum on Sunday evening (27/7/14).

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.
