Clerk of the Green Cloth

Every two years the inhabitants of Radley elect the Clerk of the Green Cloth. This is an honorary post, specifically created to raise funds for local charities. It was originally a position in the Royal Household, the Clerk being responsible for arranging Royal progressions, and George Stonhouse, who became Lord of the Manor of Radley, held the post from about 1558 until he died in 1573. In 1988, with the authority of the Royal Household, the post was revived in Radley for charitable purposes.  2006-2010
