Mayoral invite for Crewe's first civic day
CREWE will be holding its first ever Civic Sunday later this month.
Clr Irene Faseyi, town mayor, will be the first mayor to stage the service, which will take place at 11.30am on September 22 at West Street Christian Fellowship, West Street, Crewe.
Civic Services are traditionally organised by Town Mayors to give thanks for their year in office.
The Mayor will parade the short distance from the Maybury Centre with the civic guests into the church and then after the service make the short walk to the adjacent community centre for light refreshments.
The service is to be led by the Mayor’s Chaplain, Rev Geoffrey Willetts and musical accompaniment will be provided by the Co-operative Funeralcare Band North West under the direction of Jef Sparkes, its musical director.
Clr Faseyi said the service was open to the whole town.
“I’m so excited by the occasion and hope that all my guests will enjoy the celebrations,” she said.
“It is wonderful to be able to join with the community to celebrate the civic life of Crewe.
“All people of the town are more than welcome to join the congregation and participate in what I hope will be a real spectacle.”
The Town Mayor will be joined at the service by personal guests, notable civic dignitaries from other town and parish council’s, representatives from Cheshire East Council, representatives of organisations within the town and representatives from the Mayor’s nominated charities.
Clr Faseyi added: “I want the event to be as inclusive as possible and subject to the space available I am very keen to invite all that wish to attend.
“As this is the first Civic Sunday I fear we may be unable to make direct contact with all who would wish to attend, therefore through the press I would like to invite anyone who wish to be invited to make contact with me as soon as possible.”
The Mayor would also like to thank residents in the area for their consideration on the day of the event and apologises for any inconvenience caused by the number of guests attending the service.
Guests have been asked to park considerately and where possible to use Town Centre car parks.
