No plans to axe do

IN RESPONSE to Ian Hart’s column last week, which referred to axing the annual civic reception after the Remembrance Service, I would like to say we absolutely have no plans to cancel the reception held after the town’s annual Remembrance Service and March Past.

We honour, treasure, value and love our servicemen and women who have given everything so we can enjoy our liberty today and also those who are still fighting for us now. The details of the catering arrangements will be finalised nearer the time and yes current budget restraints will play some part. But rest assured there will be a proper reception for all!

The only change I am aware of is moving the venue from the usual committee suite on the first floor of the Town Hall to the Gordon Room on the ground floor to make access easier for the less able.
