What did the Mayor of Havering do all year?

Cllr Wendy Brice-Thompson provided a very interesting talk on Saturday night about her year as the Mayor of Havering 2006/2007.

The event was well attended with over 20 people there to find out more and ask questions.

We were taken through an interesting collection of photographs that she took during her term and found out more in relation to Habbit Shed, her charity for the year.

The scrap book that she has been presented with for the first half of her term is almost 30cms thick! The scrap book for the second half of her term is being finalised now and sounds as if it is going to be just as big!
