The Southwold Civic Parade left the Market Place to process to St Edmund's Church for the annual Civic Service.

New mayor Ian Bradbury was joined by colleagues from Southwold Town Council and other civic dignitaries for the event.

He was first elected to the council eight years ago, in May 2011, and re-elected for a third four-year term at the beginning of May.

Mr Bradbury started holidaying in Southwold in the mid-1970s and became attached to the town and in 2001 he bought a house in Reydon, ready to move to Suffolk after retiring from his post as a sixth form tutor at Coventry's most prestigious state secondary school, where he was a teacher of English Language and Literature.
