The sun shines on Marlow’s Civic Service
On a brilliant Sunday afternoon on 10th June, residents of Marlow and local dignitaries gathered at All Saints Church for the Town Mayor’s annual Civic Service.
The service was attended by the High Sheriff of Bucks, Prof. Ruth Farwell; Deputy Lieutenant Mr Roy Collis; Marlow Mayor Cllr Chris Funnell; Dominic Grieve, QC, MP; and mayors and other dignitaries from surrounding areas. The Venerable (Air Vice Marshall, RAF) Jonathon Chaffey took the service with Reverend Dave Bull, the Rector of All Saints Church. The Children’s Church Choir sang beautifully and was given a special round of applause.
Dominic Grieve, QC, MP for Beaconsfield, gave a reading while Jonathan Chaffey’s address made mention of the success of Marlow Town Council’s parking campaign.
Mayor Chris Funnell said: “My objective as Town Mayor is to ensure that we keep our focus on community. We need to work hard to address the issues that affect this town and we need to do so with patience and humility, in collaboration with other members of our team.
“At the annual Mayor’s Civic Service we recognise and show appreciation for everyone who contributes to this wonderful community. It’s an occasion when Councillors re-iterate their dedication to the town.”
