A year in pictures of the retiring Mayor of Calderdale Marcus Thompson

It has been a jam packed year for the outgoing Mayor of Calderdale who has brought smiles and laughter to the council chamber of his stories about his wonderful visits across the borough.

Retiring Mayor of Calderdale Marcus Thompson said he had learned during his civic year that Calderdale was a “wonderful mosaic” of communities and groups that together made the borough a great place. To celebrate this we have these fantastic pictures reflecting on his time as mayor.
