All welcome to Mayor’s Jubilee Civic Service
The annual Civic Sunday Service, held at St Michael’s Church in Church Square, Basingstoke, is traditionally one of the first high-profile engagements of a new Mayor and this year it will celebrate the record-breaking reign of Her Majesty The Queen.
The service will be taken by Licenced Lay Minister Stephen Leach and will feature music from Odiham Military Wives Choir and St Michael’s Choir.
The service starts at 3pm and there is no charge for entry. Proceeds from the collection will go to the Mayor’s two chosen local charities for this year – Tough Enough To Care and The Pink Place incorporating the Blue Space for men.
The congregation is welcome to join the Mayor for refreshments following the service, which will include the winning pudding from the jubilee pudding competition, made by hospitality and catering students and which will be selected at a special afternoon tea at Basingstoke College of Technology on Thursday 26 May.
Cllr Miller said: “I am looking forward to welcoming local people of all ages to my Jubilee Civic Service to celebrate this very special platinum jubilee together as a community."
