Immediately after the Mayor Making Ceremony had taken place a quarter peal was rung upon the bells of the Parish & Civic Church of St Mary le Wigford, which stands on the High Street in the City centre, to welcome the new Mayor, Councillor Kathleen Brothwell, as the 805th Right Worshipful Mayor of Lincoln. We wish her well during her term in office and hope she has an enjoyable and successful year as Mayor of Lincoln.
