Mayor urges public to try out volunteer work

THE new mayor of Ulverston is aiming to recognise the hard work of volunteers during her year in office.

Councillor Brenda Marr enjoyed her moment in the spotlight yesterday, parading through Ulverston’s sunlit, cobbled streets on Civic Sunday.

Speaking at the reception, Cllr Marr said her message for this year would be for people to “have a go” at volunteering.

She said: “There are so many unsung heroes in our community. We are known as the festival town, but without all the volunteers who help organise and run events, we wouldn’t have any events.

“A lot of people can get a lot of things out of volunteering.”

Following a church service, the parade of dignitaries led by Ulverston Town Band made its way to Market Cross, where Cllr Marr laid a floral tribute. The procession then continued to the Coronation Hall for refreshments.
