High Wycombe Mayor Weighing

We thought we’d pop in to town to go to the shops and ended up watching old traditions.

Apparently it is to ensure that the council officials haven’t been living it up whilst in office, so they are weighed at the start of their stint and at the end. If they weigh more then the crowd boo’s!

There were also morris dancers and re-enactors. The musicians were great and the guns scared the life out of the local pigeons!

Its such a pity they held it in Frogmore – it looks a right mess.
