Manda’s Mission

These are unusual times. That’s why Bath’s 793rd elected ‘First Citizen’ missed out on the usual – and historic – Mayor Making Ceremony.

I have been chatting to Cllr Manda Rigby who has yet to have her full ceremonial picture taken – but the lockdown hasn’t stopped her getting out to meet the people.

She talked to me about her ‘bench meetings’, her theme for her Mayoral year, the future of her volunteer Corps of Honorary City Guides and one negative side of this restricted living that has affected us both!!

She’s a chatty and charming person. Do enjoy.
