Hawbush ‘lass’ Jayne Magin
Congratulations to Deputy Mayor Steve Waltho and his partner Deputy Mayoress Jayne Magin who tied the knot yesterday. Steve is one of the most community minded and hard working councillors I know and will make a first class mayor next year.
It was a pleasure to speak to Jayne at the recent Voices for Choices charity launch, I couldn’t help noticing the official regalia she was wearing.
It was one of the old Brierley Hill Urban District chair’s chains off office, now in the care of Dudley Council.
Jayne told me how she was proud to wear the badge of the town where she grew up and how she attended Hawbush School from 1966 to 1972 and then became one of the first intake of Buckpool school.
The mayoral badge displays the coat of arms of Brierley Hill.
As always it was good to see a Brierley Hill residents doing so well.
I wish both Jayne and Steve a happy future together and a successful civic year.
