Eventually a virtual meeting was held when Councillor Nixon and Peter were installed.

HANGING BASKETS INSTALLED
On Sunday 6th June a group of some 30 volunteers from the Ecclian Society and friends gathered to erect over sixty hanginf baskets and over 40 mangers in the town centre.
It was wet and miserable day but the team were undeterred and the task was completed in good time giving our town centre a bright and floral look ready for the summer.
