Bridgwater/Marsa Association members attend Mayoral Reception.
On Friday 11th May Bridgwater’s New Mayor Councillor Philip Smeed took over from our previous Mayor Councillor Pat Parker. A reception was held by the Mayor and Mrs Ute Smeed was held in the Town Hall where many councillors from the different areas and a very wide cross section of Bridgwater people involved in town life had been invited.
Mr Smeed has taken over the Presidency of the Bridgwater/Marsa Twinning Association; we are the first English town to twin with a Maltese town (which was last year) so we were very honoured to be able to attend to meet many people, have an enjoyable meal and entertainment. We look forward to working with Cllr Smeed and are planning a Maltese evening when we hope to have people come from all over the West Country as we had on the last two annual events we have held.
