Issue 9 of the Hedon Newsletter is now available to collect from local shops, pubs and public buildings.
The edition includes an illuminating personal recollection from Councillor Mike Bryan on his experience as Hedon Mayor. The article shows his efforts in both his civic role and in his personal capacity as Mayor to promote the town and local good causes.
I think that the article does a service in indicating what the role involves but also the context of that role in an ever changing world. In this regard it should be considered an historical document. Imagine if we had a similar report from the first Mayor of Hedon and subsequent incumbants!? What an historical record and commentary that would have provided!
Councillor Bryan was the town’s 661st Mayor – Councillor Ann Suggit was elected as the 662nd in March 2009.
Also featured in the current 30 page Hedon Newsletter is a breakdown of the Hedon Town Council’s budget for 2009/10; information on ‘What’s on…’ at Alexandra Hall; a profile of Hedon Karate Club and a piece about The Hedon Blog – many thanks to the Editor!
