Mayors Blog week ending 4th August


Tues 30th July – As an honorary member of Chard Rotary club (a position held by the Mayor of Chard) Andy and I attended the Rotary’s partner dinner at the Phoenix Hotel.  After a very nice two course meal we were treated to two speakers who told us about their young working life as members of Hardy Amis’s team, dress designer to the Queen. They had many tales of the lavish lifestyle led by the people who were the gurus of fashion in their day.


Thurs 1st August  – I attended Chard Carnivals meeting; the Mayor also holds an honorary position within this committee as president, this is a position I will hold with pride as I was 6 when the Carnival was re-introduced in Chard and remember being on a float as puppets to “puppets on a string”.  Plans for this year’s Carnival on 12th October are underway, let’s hope for a fine night with lots of people out supporting… I will be there in my robes walking with the procession.
