Five more people presented with Honorary Freeman badges

There are five new honorary town freemen in Verwood following an event over the weekend.

Val Bright, Royston Slade, Gordon Thorne, Hilly Chittenden and Adrian Wareham were presented with their Freedom Scrolls and Honorary Freeman badges by last year’s Town Mayor, Cllr Simon Gibson and the current Town Mayor, Cllr Toni Coombs.

Angela Daymond, who was made an Honorary Freeman in 2012, was also presented with a Freedom Scroll.

The Mayor, Councillor Toni Coombs said: “It was an honour and privilege to present the new Honorary Freemen of Verwood with their scrolls and badges of office. Many had spent most of their adult lives putting back into our community of Verwood and Three Legged Cross.”

“Together they have shaped the community spirit of our town and deserve the recognition of their peers.”

The event took place on Sunday 23rd July 2023.
