Mayor of Reigate & Banstead's Focus To 'Include' This Xmas

Mayor Dorothy (centre) and Jim Ross-Tomlin were supported by a first-class team of clergy, choirs and readers at last night’s Council Carol Service, held at the thriving United Reform Church in Reigate Park. Distinguished guests and all members of the congregation were enthralled throughout, and were particularly delighted with the beautiful singing from the pupils of Sandcross School and the wonderful crowd participation led by the ‘Include Choir’.

Deputy Mayor, Julian Ellacott (left) also greeted the Chairman of Mole Valley, Raj Haque (centre) together with the Mayor and Mayoress of Sevenoaks, Roddy and Mary Hogarth.

When chatting to the Include Choir, we discovered that no-one knew of any Makaton signing for ‘High Sheriff’, so I had to become ‘King of Surrey’ for the night!
