A year ago the
mayor Alan Downing announced in association with the Bexley Historical Society that it was felt appropriate to fill one of the empty plinths on
the town centre clocktower with
a bust of the Queen
to commemorate her Jubilee. As a result the tower has been under wraps for the past month ready for the great day.
Last year the Civic Parade was blessed with a couple of hours of sunshine within
an otherwise wet week. Fingers crossed the sun will return on 9th June.
At great personal inconvenience I have rearranged my schedule so that I can lurk in the background attempting to replenish my stock of photographs of gurning councillors and the new mayor smiling under her tricorn hat.
