Dr Ann Kennard has been awarded the Lord Mayor’s International Medal for her many years work to strengthen the twinning with Hannover. Ann has been the chairperson of the Bristol Hannover Council (BHC) for over fifteen years and her dedicated and tireless efforts have played a vital role in developing the relationship. The ceremony took place at the Mansion House hosted by Lord Mayor Jeff Lovell and was part of a larger event where over 30 local people received Lord Mayor’s Medals for their outstanding contributions to their community and the city itself. Ann was accompanied by her husband Tony while BHC stalwart Lynne Evans also attended with BITA chairman Derek Pickup. This year Ann has also taken on the extra responsibility of facilitating the 70th Anniversary Committee and she paid tribute to the work of all the volunteers involved in both the BHC and the 70th committee. Congratulations Ann!
