Our guests on Sunday 16th June were Cllr Carl Robinson who looked back over his recent tenure as Mayor and shared with us some memorable events he and his lovely wife, Carole, attended as Mayor and Mayoress.
For Carl, one occasion holds a special place in his memory, and that was when he officiated at the Memorial Day Service, a very moving and humbling experience.
Our other guest in the studio was Tony Beddard, chair of the All Disabilities Matter admin committee, who discussed their successful application to the Charity Commission to gain All Disabilities Matter a charity status.
We discussed the positive impact on the group of being chosen as Cllr Robinson’s nominated charity, the growth in membership and their plans for the future once their charity status has been officially confirmed.
