Former Welwyn Hatfield mayor’s last orders
DIGNITARIES dropped into a Welwyn pub during its re-opening celebrations.
Former Welwyn Hatfield mayor Kim Langley and MP Grant Shapps both popped into the newly opened The Wellington in High Street.
The 13th century pub and restaurant re-opened on May 24, having been closed since a fire gutted the establishment in June last year.
The day before, Cllr Langley visited for a look round.
It was her last public engagement before handing over the mayoral chain to Howard Morgan.
