Surprise party held to celebrate Mayor and Mayoresses past year
A surprise party was held for the Mayor and Mayoress of Barrow, Bill and Judith McEwan, to thank them for their help and support for Barrow and Furness charities and communities over their past year in office.
The party was held today (April 26th 2019) at Trinity Church on Abbey Road.
Lorraine Buckley and Tim Jeffries prepared the lovely buffet with food brought in from a Jacob's join.
Bill and Judith were also presented with a commemorative photo to celebrate everything they have achieved throughout the past year. The photo was created by Huddlehub and features a collage of events and activities the Mayor and Mayoress have participated in the past year.
Bill said: "I am totally overwhelmed by your kindness and the people of Barrow never fail to amaze me"
"I love this town and it's people, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my year as Mayor and I wish I didn't have to end!"
"And finally I want to thank my Wife Judith, because as they say, behind every great man is an even greater woman."
The party toasted Bill and Judith's good health and thanked them for their support over the past year.
