Buckingham will be showing its pride at a Civic Day to be held on June 22.

Nationally, the day is a celebration of civic pride and The Buckingham Society is organising its own version so the people of Buckingham can show they care about where they live.

The Rotary Club of Buckingham will be honouring the town’s citizen of the year with a trophy to be presented by Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow who will also formally open the event.

Mayor Ruth Newell will present cheques on behalf of Rotary to local charities which are to benefit from its recent swimathon.

Attractions will include a garden party on the terrace outside the Old Gaol with local musicians providing entertainment, and tea and cakes will be on sale.

Ed Grimsdale will be taking groups on guided walks around civic Buckingham. Tickets are available from the Old Gaol.

People can also find out more about Buckingham’s Neighbourhood Plan from local councillors and officials.

There will be free entry for all to the Old Gaol including the display of the Buckingham’s civic regalia.

The event will start at 10am with an announcement from the town crier and finish at 2pm.
