Reading’s new Mayor, councillor Rose Williams

Katesgrove councillor Rose Williams was elected Mayor and councillor Glenn Dennis was elected Deputy Mayor at the 24 May Council AGM .

The ceremony was held in the Concert Hall at Reading Town Hall on Blagrave Street. At the start of proceedings the mace bearer led the mayoral party onto the stage. After the elections the party was led off the stage by the mace bearer.

There was then an interval during which the audience was entertained by the Reading Borough Council choir. After the interval, in changed robes, the party returned to the stage and new mayor Rose Williams received the mace from outgoing mayor Mohammed Ayub.

For now, just the pageantry, more of the proceedings and speeches to follow.
