Mace Bearer Wanted
Carterton Town Council is looking for someone to take up the very important position of Mace Bearer at our civic ceremonies (three/four times a year). Please note that the mace is made of seasoned wood and therefore quite heavy. There is a small remuneration for the right candidate. For more information, please visit the Town Hall.
The Mayor of Carterton, Cllr Mrs Lynn Little, would like to say thank you to Anneka Ranford of Carterton, and to St. Peter's Church in Alvescot, for their recent donations to the Carterton Community Foodbank.
RNLI Morrisons Collection
The Mayor would like to thank Roger Battley for volunteering to collect for the RNLI in Morrisons in July. A total of £148.20 was collected - thank you to all the many people who gave a donation to such a good cause.
Thanks from the Mayor
May I take this opportunity to thank the Station Commander of RAF Brize Norton for his help in arranging the service of thanks that was held on Saturday 27th June at our War Memorial to give thanks to our Armed Forces and Veterans. My thanks also go to the RAF and Army personnel who attended and many members of public who supported the event, the standard bearers, air and army cadets and my special thanks go to Flt Lt Sven Meldrum and FS Mark Hamer of 99 Squadron as Project Officers and Station Warrant Officer, Tony Dunn, for all of his help and advice. My thanks also go 47 Air Dispatch Squadron and to all of the military charity stalls that attended on the day. Last but not least my thanks go to Julian Carlin and Ciara McAleese and Rosie Herridge with their help in the flag raising. To view photos from the day, please click here.
