Twenty three years ago - where have all the years gone?

Nine year old Vicky Beaumont, proudly wearing her 3rd Rastrick St John Brownie uniform with Calderdale Deputy Mayoress Margaret Williamson outside Halifax Town Hall in April 1994.

I well remember Margaret back in the days of the Rastrick Golden Link Club at Rastrick. I would often be asked to talk to the members about crime prevention related matters or a little bit of Brighouse history.

Margaret and her husband John were Deputy Mayor for the years 1993 /94 during the tenure of the Mayor Tony Mazey and then in 2005/06 John and Margaret were themselves appointed the Mayor and Mayoress of Calderdale.
