Video: Dignitaries march through High Wycombe
MANY Mayors and dignitaries representing towns from across Buckinghamshire and beyond marched through High Wycome this morning.
Dressed in full ceremonial gear, with chains and traditional attire, the group took part in the annual civic service.
Chauhdry Shafique, the latest High Wycombe Mayor in a long list of over 500 stretching back to 1285, greeted guests at Wycombe District Council's offices in Queen Victoria Road from 9am.
He said: “It was a fantastic day and an excellent turnout, with so many dignitaries who had come.
"The service was done excellently by Jackie Lock and Reverend Hugh Ellis, it was brilliant, very well researched for the occasion.
"It was a wonderful opportunity for people to speak to each other and catch up.
"The theme of the service was really about social interfaith and the cultural side of the town and how proud we can be of the way we live in High Wycombe."
He said a visitor from China had been fascinated by the occasion.
The town crier’s bell signalled it was time for the dignitaries, who included Wycombe MP Steve Baker, Amersham Mayor Mimi Harker, High Wycombe Mayor elect Trevor Snaith, and Marlow Deputy Mayor Suzanne Brown, among others, to set off on the parade just before 10am.
They walked through the High Street and to the church for the traditional service.
