Civic Reception for new borough mayor
Cllr David Powell, the newly elected mayor for Reigate and Banstead Borough Council for 2016/17 chose to have his Civic Reception at St Bart's Church. This was very exciting as we are not sure when Bart's was last used for such a prestigious service.
We had hundreds of people at the church to celebrate this wonderful occasion during which the Church and State come together in their common purpose to serve the community.
Cllr Powell is also the first Horley councillor to be elected borough mayor in 25 years. There was an article in the Crawley Observer, which can be seen here.
