Sprecher der Cinque Ports – Rednertag

Der Sprecher übernimmt die Rolle des Vorsitzenden und Hauptvertreters der Cinque Ports Confederation. Dieses angesehene Amt wird automatisch vom Bürgermeister jedes Haupthafens und zweier alter Städte inne. Diese Nachfolge folgt einem einzigartigen Prozess, der als „siebenjährige Revolution“ bekannt ist,’ whereby the role transfers from one town to another on the 21st of May each year. For the current municipal year, 2023-2024, this honour has been bestowed upon Dover Town. The esteemed role of Speaker is now fulfilled by The Right Worshipful The Town Mayor of Dover and Speaker of the Cinque Ports, Cllr Susan Jones. The focal point of the year will be the upcoming Speakers Day, scheduled for Saturday, October 7th, 2023. During this event, all the Cinque Ports Mayors and various dignitaries will convene in Dover for a Civic Procession, followed by a ‘Thankyou & Recognition to the Sea Orationand RNLI Tug Boat Display.
