CIVIC PARADE AND CHURCH SERVICE
The Mayor of Louth, Councillor Brian Burnett welcomed to Louth Civic guests from around the County on Sunday 22nd April 2012 when his Civic Parade and Church Service took place. Amongst others, local contingents of the Combined Cadet Force, Air Training Corps, Scouts, Brownies and Police Cadets congregated in Northgate Car Park at 11am where a procession was formed (including Mayors and Chairman from across the County). The parade, led by the Market Rasen RPC Band, marched up Eastgate to the Methodist Church on Nichol Hill where a Church Service with an all inclusive feel that celebrated and gave thanks for the Mayor's year in office took place. This commenced at 11.30am and directly afterwards the parade formed up again and marched up Eastgate, turning left onto upgate and then left onto Mercer Row where it halted so that the Mayor could take up position in the Market Place ready to take a Salute from paraders as they passed by. Finally, the parade marched to the Town Hall where it was thanked and dismissed and light refreshments were provided for all those who took part.
This event is seen as a vital one in the Mayor's calendar, allowing him to showcase Louth to a number of influential people.
The Mayor and Louth Town Council would like to thank everyone who took part for helping to make the day such a wonderful success. Many favourable comments were received about the parade, the day and the town in general.
