THE Mayor of Barry, Coun Nic Hodges, has described Mary Thomas, winner of the mayor’s adult award, as “a phenomenal lady”.
Coun Hodges made the award to her at the recent mayor-making ceremony in the town. She was recognised for her work with Tenovus and Barry Soroptimists.
Coun Hodges said she had made a huge contribution to the community over many years.
“She is a phenomenal lady. I know her as someone involved in St Nicholas Community Hall in my Ward.
“She is the sort of person who makes a town special and I was delighted to present her with the award.”
Winner of the youth award was Bailey Sloan.
Coun Hodges said it was important that the council recognised the contribution both young people and adults made to society.
