It has been our tradition to invite the Mayor and the Mayoress of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to an annual Rotary dinner. This tradition has been shared with the Rotary Club of Kensington and we look forward to welcoming these honourable guests on Wednesday 13 November at the Gore Hotel.
Each year, in May, the Council of Kensington and Chelsea Borough elects a councillor to serve as the Royal Borough's ceremonial and civic head. In 2013-14, the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Councillor Charles Williams, has been elected for this position. On his election as Mayor, Councillor Williams appointed his wife Mrs June Williams as his Mayoress.
The Mayor receives members of the Royal Family and other important guests on their formal visits to official engagements in the borough. The Mayor supports two of the hospices that serve residents in the Royal Borough: Trinity Hospice and Pembridge Palliative Care Centre.
This year, the traditional Civic Dinner takes place at the Gore Hotel. It is organised by the RC Kensington.
