The service for Mayor Cynthia Barker, who was appointed in June this year, went from the civic offices in Borehamwood on Wednesday, September 23, onto the The White Hart in South Mimms and the Wyllyotts Theatre and Cinema before ending back at the council offices.

The borough councillor had first represented Potters Bar before becoming Borehamwood’s Kenilworth ward councillor in 2015.
