YOU may have noticed that Mayor Martin Akehurst has been wearing a different chain of office.
Martin tells me that he inherited it with a missing link so it kept getting caught on his clothes.
Martin has been wearing the Henley medal on a blue ribbon while a temporary link was fitted.
He says it will be repaired properly when the links with names of the last few mayors are added. When asked if the problem was caused by its overuse, Martin replied: “We have got full council next week and the Mayor’s report of visits has broken into two pages!”
