Worthing’s former Mayor got his name etched in marble this week at the town hall…
Calligraphers Rob Jolly and Paul Binstead were back to add Councillor Alex Harman to the roll call of Mayors.👨🎨👍
Using a hammer and chisel, Rob who has been coming to the council every year for the last 30, etched the name and chosen symbol of Worthing’s youngest mayor on to the marble wall of the first floor of the council. Cllr. Harman chose
a Crusaders’ cross from the crest of Richebourg as his symbol.
Richebourg is the town where the the WW1 Battle of Boar’s Head took place. Also known as ‘The Day Sussex Died’, of the 366 soldiers from the Royal Sussex Regiment soldiers who lost their lives, 22 were from Worthing.
Earlier this year, the then Mayor of Worthing granted the Mayor of Richebourg the freedom of the borough of Worthing.
