Newspaper Article 1929 – Wedding Tribute

A pleasant function took place in the Borough Chambers at the conclusion of the Woodville Borough Council meeting last evening, when the Councillors entertained the Mayor (Mr H. P. Horne) at supper and presented him with a handsome silver entree dish, suitably inscribed, on the occasion of his approaching marriage. The presentation was made by Cr. A. M. Pickering, and the whole of the Councillors joined with him in paying tribute to the Mayor, and wishing him and his prospective bride health and prosperity in their wedded life. The Town Clerk (Mr. D. Keay) also added his felicitations on behalf of the staff and Mr A. H. Vile on behalf of the Press. Mr Horne, who was taken completely by surprise, expressed his sincere thanks and appreciation, on behalf of Miss Nelson and himself, for the kind thought that had prompted the presentation. He mentioned that he had been in the Borough Council with one short break since 1903, and, had been Mayor for 15 years. He promised that he would not relax his energies for the benefit of the borough in the years to come. Hearty cheers for the Mayor followed the lusty singing of “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow”.
