Walsall Congregation Present Local Councillor with Mayoral History

Two members of the Walsall Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints met with Councillor, and recent Walsall Mayor, Kath Phillips in the Town Hall. They presented Ms Phillips with gifts to show their appreciation for the visits she made to their chapel in Old Wolverhampton Road.


Councillor Phillips, with her Consort husband Maurice, attended the Annual Hymn Singing Festival and the Christmas Carol Service.

Stephen Mills, a member of the Walsall Ward Bishopric presented her with a beautiful bound volume of the Scriptures.

Margaret Hampton, who acts as the local church Historian, presented her with a volume recording all the major events Kath had been involved in during her term as Town Mayor.

Margaret and Kath have been long-time friends since they began working together at the old CO-OP Home Maker store some thirty years ago.
