The new Mayor of Helston
Today I attended Helston’s Mayor making Ceremony. This started off with coffee in the Methodist Chapel with a parade up to the Guildhall where we had the handing over of Office with a few speeches from the outgoing Mayor and new Mayor. After this, we assembled outside and paraded down to the Royal British Legion for light refreshments.
The new Mayor is Cllr John Boase with Cllr Mrs Vicky Mathews being elected as the Deputy Mayor. It was nice to see these ancient traditions still being carried out. The only part I was involved in was witnessing the process and being part of the parade. I was invited because my role as a Cornwall Councillor covers both Towns of Porthleven and Helston (Helston South).
