  1. Dave deserves all the plaudits. He has served the town and its succession of Mayor’s in a dignified, yet authoritative way, ensuring that the Hedon Mayor’s status, as the ‘Senior Town Mayor of Yorkshire’ is acknowledged far and wide.
    Many a time he has brought that fact to the attention of town clerks and parade organisers across the county, As far as Dave is concerned, Hedon’s Mayors do not parade ‘in alphabetical order’ – they are at the front!
    Enjoy your retirement Dave. All the best, and thanks for all your support

  2. I hope Mr Young enjoys his retirement as Hedon’s Mace Bearer. He certainly cut a dashing figure in his robes and hat. He always lent an air of strength, honour and authority to his office and did Hedon proud. Thank you. You leave big shoes for your successor to fill!
