Mr John Black, a past President and Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, kindly gave the annual Mayor’s Medical Lecture on Wednesday evening. The audience was spellbound by his account of Surgeons, War and Worcester.
During his working life in Worcester, Mr Black pioneered keyhole surgery in the city. My thanks to him for a memorable lecture.
I was honoured to receive the salute from the Scouts’ march past, following a St George’s day service at the Cathedral. One scout troop joined Phil and I for tea in the Parlour and tried on the regalia. They had some interesting questions about the Parlour and the city’s history.
On Saturday, I attended the launch of Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in Crowngate. I am intending to participate myself, this year, so I will see you on the starting line on Sunday 6 July! Wolverine fans will be glad to know they will be at the race, too.
WODS production of Guys and Dolls was superb! If you are a fan of the original film, you are sure to like this production. There are strong performances from all of the principals and barnstorming musical numbers like Sit down, you’re Rocking the Boat; Luck, Be a Lady; Guys and Dolls, and Sue Me. Tonight’s the last night. Don’t miss it!
Last Friday, the Mayor’s annual charity dinner was held in the Guildhall, co-hosted with Worcester Rotary. The Volcano choir energised guests with their high octane performance. Many thanks to them, to Worcester Rotary and to our guests for their generosity to our charities.
