WTN welcomes the Mayor of Walsall

January 2017

We were thrilled to welcome the Mayor of Walsall Kath Phillips and Consort to the Walsall Talking Newspaper Studio on Wednesday 25th January 2017.

The Mayor came to the studio to be interviewed and recorded for WTN, to give us a little insight as to what being the Mayor of Walsall encompasses.

The Mayor also spent time chatting to our Wednesday Group Social Activity Centre clients and we would like to say thank you for spending time with us today and that the Mayor will always be welcome as part of the Society.

There are 2 pictures with this post, 1 shows the Mayor with WTN Volunteer Jane, who prepared and conducted the interview and picture 2 shows the Mayor sitting in front of the recording decks with Talking Services Manager Keith Corbett.

We hope you are a listener of our Talking News, if not, why not contact us to learn more, come along and join the WTN family.
