Mayor at home
The Mayor, Coun Hazel Bettison, began a hectic afternoon of six official engagements in six hours by holding her '˜at home' in the Guildhall on Thursday.
With the Sheriff, Ian Hay, she hosted a function which figured prominently in the town’s social calendar and it was well supported.
The event, which the Mayor said was “special”, ended with the choir of Prior Park School singing a 90th birthday tribute to the Queen, for which they had only completed rehearsals in the morning.
Berwick Male Voice Choir and the schoolchildren entertained, and later everyone joined in singing popular songs from the Second World War period.
The Mayor thanked her guests for supporting the event so well.
