Warminster Town Council

warminster-civic-service-2017Sunday, 23rd April 2017

This was very much a 'swansong' for me and my fellow Wiltshire Mayors as we are all coming to the end of our Mayoral Year. The Minster Church of St Denys was the venue and we met Warminster's new Town Clerk, Fiona Fox, who has only recently taken over the office. Today was, of course, St George's Day, something that was pointed out to us by the Revd. Jacques Desrosiers, himself a French Canadian, as he quizzed the congregation on their knowledge of our English Patron Saint. It was a special service and we were treated to some sublime singing courtesy of The Military Wives Choir, something of a coup on the part of the Mayor of Warminster, Councillor Paul MacFarlane. The final hymn, a rousing rendition of Jerusalem, was very fitting on St George's Day.
