Mayor-Making in Leicester Town Hall – 21 May

It was a great privilege that Janet and I were both able to attend the Leicester Mayor-Making.  As High Sheriff, you have the good fortune to get to know one Lord Mayor (Cllr John Thomas) for a few weeks before the handover to the next Lord Mayor (Cllr Ted Cassidy).  Cllr Thomas was very supportive of the 50th Anniversary during 2014 of the Leicestershire Historic Churches Trust (of which Janet is Chairman) and our paths crossed many times during the Richard III week – and we congratulate him and Mrs Margaret Corley on a very successful year in office.  Cllr Cassidy and I serve together on Leicester Cathedral Council, and we have worked on projects for St Philip’s Centre and for St Peter’s Highfields – so it was a particular pleasure for me to see Ted become Leicester’s Lord Mayor, with Mrs Vijay Sharma taking up the role of consort.
