The Mayor of Shrewsbury was the first person to see the newly installed Rotary Tree of Light at St. Mary’s Church. Councillor Gwen Burgess was visiting the church at the same time as members of Shrewsbury Severn Rotary Club were installing the 2020 Tree of Light in the Bell Tower.
The Mayor told Rotarians she was ‘delighted’ to be the first visitor to the Tree and wished Rotary every success in this year’s fundraising. Rotarian Iain Gilmour said members of Shrewsbury Severn Rotary Club had just completed the installation of the Rotary Tree of Light when the Mayor arrived.
“The Mayor was visiting the festive charity card shop in the church and her arrival, just as we were completing the installation, could not have been more timely. I am delighted to say the Mayor was most impressed, so we are hoping more visitors to St. Mary’s Church will be thrilled to see this year’s Tree.”
