The Town Council is responsible for a number of events that are held throughout the year. Many of these events are Civic Events, where the Town Mayor is robed with the Sergeant-at-Mace, the second mace, the halbardiers and the Town Clerk in attendance. Some of these Civic Events date back many years and the Town Council takes great pride in preserving the traditions and the heritage associated with them.


There are also a number of other events that form part of the heritage of the town with which the Town Council plays an active part.
