Mayors Report November 2021
As we have a very full agenda this evening my Mayor's report is brief.
Since our last meeting I have been honoured to attend a number of events in the town including the weekly Park Run along the Prom and the Annual Bonfire and Fireworks display. These, and many other events and activities in Hunstanton, are organised by dedicated teams of volunteers and I would like to thank them all once again. Some events are really too big for one group to organise and so I am very pleased that during the last few weeks a number of organisations in the town have come together at the Town Council's bequest to form a Hunstanton Events Committee. The committee has already started putting in place plans to re-instate Hunstanton Carnival in June next year.
The major event this month was the Remembrance Day Parade and Service at the Cenotaph. It was so good to see so many people turning out to honour the fallen. It was especially pleasing that the commander and members of the USAF 67th SOS were able to join us in our commemorations and we look forward to welcoming them back to the town for the Anniversary of the Floods at the end of January next year. Perhaps my greatest honour during Remembrance was to be asked to present a very special medal and badge to Sid and Betty Miller who between them have given 120 years of service to the Royal British Legion.
Hunstanton Town Council is providing financial support to some forthcoming festive events – the HDFA Christmas Craft Fair, the HDFA Christmas Tree Festival and the Town Hall Panto, Cinderella. We hope that members of our community, young, old and in between, will take the opportunity to visit and enjoy these.
