In all walks of life we meet people who we find are truly inspirational and wonder how they do it, the two ladies I am going to mention this week I am fortunate to have known prior to being mayor and both are incredible in their own way.
I must start this week with a correction. In my column last week I told you about the civic service at St Mary’s Church, however I reported that it would be February 2, when in fact it is actually to be on February 17 at 3pm.
With the first half of my week being filled with meetings I was looking forward to my first engagement being Thursday evening at Red’s in Butlins Bognor Regis for the 21st Arun Business Partnership Awards 2018.
As the nation focussed its thoughts and efforts on the act of remembrance, with this year being particularly poignant being the centenary of the end of the First World War, I was pleased to see how much effort our own town had also put into marking this occasion.
Last week, for the first time while being mayor, I did not attend any engagements and so instead of looking back over the past week, this week I would like to look forward to the coming weekend and particularly remembrance day on Sunday.
