A 50-year friendship was celebrated at this year’s annual Civic Sunday Service with the Mayor delighted to welcome the Burgermeister of Hilden to Warrington.
Held annually to celebrate the inauguration of the new Mayor, this year’s event also marked the 50th anniversary of Warrington’s twinning with the city of Hilden in Germany.
In celebration of the half a century of friendship, the Burgermeisterr of Hilden, Birgit Alkenings, joined the Mayor of Warrington, Cllr. Karen Mundry at the service.
Councillor Karen Mundry is the towns 135th Mayor and first citizen and the tenth woman to hold the position. Her charity appeal is at the heart of her term and she has chosen to support Warrington Disability Partnership, The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Centre for Peace and some smaller charities.
The service was conducted by The Reverend Canon Paul Wilson who gave a profound sermon centred around the parable of the good Samaritan. Music was provided by Warrington Brass and the Cheshire Drum and Brass. Attendees were also treated to a stirring performance by the Warrington Male Voice Choir. The standards were proudly borne by members of the First Kings Own Borders Regiment.
