Lucy and I attended the mayor making ceremony in Hereford City Hall on 13th May when Councillor Kath Hey was made 638th Mayor of Hereford.
The ceremony took place in the presence of Councillors and council officials as well as other mayors from the market towns and County Councillors. The Council staff were attired in their very smart uniforms, lending a note of pomp and dignity to the ceremony. Speakers paid tribute to the hard work and success of Councillor Sue Boulter, the retiring Mayor, as well as to the work Kath had done in her lead up to office.
The new Mayor will be supporting the CLD Trust https://www.thecldtrust.org/ and the Bereavement Support Service http://www.phoenixbereavement.org during her year of office. It was an honour to attend her event, and I hope there will be opportunities for me to attend and support other Hereford Council events in an official capacity.
