I was kindly invited to the Civic Service of the new Mayor of Spelthorne, Vivienne Leighton.
A lovely village Church in Shepperton dating from 1614. What a great part of Surrey down by the River Thames. The Service and the tea party afterwards (great strawberry scones) were very much community focused with the Mayor herself leading the singing (she has a lovely voice!), in a local choir,
of Faure’s Cantique de Jean Racine. I wish Vivienne all success in her year of office. .
