I have been pulling together lots of history! Well you do when you get to a specific age.
One of the newspaper clippings caught my eye as it related to the Mayor Making of my former Ward Colleague and teacher from my former school – Wards Bridge Secondary Modern. Gwen was Mayor of Wolverhampton from 1998-1999.
I have placed the article on the site for you to read.
Gwen pledged herself to support the campaign for City status for Wolverhampton and Mike who also became a Wednesfield North Councillor, spent £1,165 on boroughs first civic regalia with the purchase of a Consorts Badge. Wolverhmpton became a City in the Year 2,000.
Both were very good Wednesfield North Councillors and they are very worthy to remember on these pages…!
