Residents are invited to attend the civic service to honour the new mayor, Councillor Maureen Davenport, and mayoress, Mrs Liz Archer, at St Mary and All Saints’ Church, the Crooked Spire, on Saturday 13 May from 11am.
The service will be led by the mayor’s chaplain, Revd Janet Quick, and the church’s incumbent, Revd Patrick Coleman.
There will be a civic procession from the Town Hall to the church.
Anyone attending the service is asked to be seated for 10.40am before the procession arrives at the church.
The service will be followed by a further procession from the church to the Town Hall.
There is likely to be congestion in the town centre and the car parks around the Town Hall will also be closed until after the service.
