The RWB Arts Festival were delighted to attend the mayor making event on the evening of 10th May, in Royal Wootton Bassett.
John Davies attended on behalf of the Music side of the Festival and Rhian Vaughan represented the Speech and Drama side of RWBAF. This was the first time Rhian had attended the mayoral event, and she reports:
“What a pleasant evening it was. The speeches were lovely and at times entertaining. We heard from the retiring Mayor Councillor Steve Bucknell, the new/now current Mayor Councillor Mike Farrow and heard the kind and supportive speeches of other council members. The Town Clerk closed the speeches by updating us on the developments of the town over the past year.
It was a lovely opportunity to speak with locals of Royal Wootton Bassett and great to talk with Councillor Allison Bucknell about the RWB Arts Festival. There was a generous spread and plenty of drink, and it was a very good way to spend a Thursday night!”
From all of us here at RWBAF we wish the Mayor Councillor Mike Farrow all the best in his new role. Congratulations!
