The Mayor of Horncastle Councillor Sandra Campbell-Wardman has attended one of her last official functions in the post - the town’s annual Civic Service.

It was held at St Mary’s Church and attracted guests from a host of neighbouring town and parish councils.

Coun Campbell-Wardman, has served as Mayor for the last 12 months, but has now handed over the chains of office.

She will not be seeking re-election to the Town Council because of rules regarding residence.

Coun Campbell-Wardman no longer lives within the town boundary.

However, she is hoping to retain her seat on the District Council as one of three Horncastle representatives.

The theme of the Civic Service was ‘friends and family.’

Musical entertainment was provided by Banovallum Brass.

Several organisations were represented and there were standards on view from the Royal British Legion, the town’s Air Cadets and the Brownies and Rainbows.

After the service - which was well attended - there was a reception hosted by Coun Campbell-Wardman at Stanhope Hall.

Coun Campbell-Wardman said: “I’ve really enjoyed my 12 months in office.

“I’ve been proud to represent the town at so many different functions and events.

“It was good to see so many familiar faces at the service and I would like to thank everyone who supported the event - and supported me in the last 12 months.

“I wish the council all the very best for the future.”
