On Monday I went to the Christopher Whitehead Language College to their Creative Arts Event which was a showcase of their students’ work. The school hall was packed with parents and siblings who enjoyed an evening featuring performances and work by Hair and Beauty, Music, Drama, Dance, Textiles, Art and Photography and Food Technology Students. Thank you to Debbie Plaslaitt and her colleagues and students for putting on this event. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, it has been a long time since such events were possible.
The following night I chaired my final full council meeting before I hand the chain over at the Annual Council in May. We said farewell to the retiring councillors who aren’t seeking re-election in May: Bill Amos, Tom Collins, Louise Griffiths, Jo Hodges, and Mike Johnson. After the meeting I hosted refreshments in the lower hall that included a cake baked by the mayoress and cheese made by me.
Last night the mayoress and I attended the Mayor of Stourport’s Charity Ball at the Stourport Manor Hotel. I have met the Mayor Danny Russell and Mayoress Mary Russell several times during my mayoral year, where all the county mayors and chairs are collectively known as “the chain gang.”
This morning the mayoress and I will be having breakfast at The Postal Order at the Worcester Veterans Breakfast Club.
