Yesterday, at our annual Mayor Making Ceremony, Councillor Martin Stooke was installed as Mayor of Kidderminster for the coming year.
The ceremony was hugely sucessful with nearly 200 guests and many civic Mayors and dignitaries from the surrounding areas. We at the Town Council would like to say a massive thank you to those who attended the ceremony and watched Councillor Stooke be invested with his chain and robes at The Town Hall.
