Complete with regalia, Colin Cook, an Osney Councillor, was elected Lord Mayor of Oxford on the 15th of June, according to local flysheet the Jericho and Osney Rose.
However, according to the Oxford Mail, he was elected Mayor on the 15th of May.
Anyway, Colin and Lady Mayoress Helen Cook will “preside over Oxford ceremonies” in his full regalia.
We’d like to invite them to the downing/painting of the Rusty Pole on Mill Street, still sadly unpainted despite the best efforts of Nicola Westwood MP as was, and if you’d like to join her and him in their full regalia, feel free to drop them an email here !
We’re looking forwards to it, not backwards! The picture in the Rose is not the most flattering of Colin, so we put together another picture. If you want more about Oxford, head over to Volesoft!
