The Mayor and Mayoress shop for pressies in the Silk Mill Shop.

Whitchurch’s Mayor, Councillor John Clark, and his partner were spotted at the Silk Mill Shop this morning as they did some Christmas shopping.

Be sure to pop into our numerous shops around town to find that special something for that special someone.

It is just 11 days to go until the Mayor switches on the lights at the Town Hall – which hopefully will have its leaky roof fixed, some paint touched up and the scaffolding removed! The fun continues afterwards down at the Gill Nethercott Centre for a Christmas Fair. Outside, candles will light up the edge of the River Test at Great Town Bridge. Details HERE.
