The annual Civic Service for councillors to pledge their commitment to Lichfield and Burntwood residents has taken place at Lichfield Cathedral

This year’s event saw a break with tradition as councillors joined the cathedral for Evensong as opposed to the Sung Eucharist. The congregation also enjoyed singing by Lichfield Gospel Choir.

More than 200 guests attended the service, including the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, civics from surrounding areas, the Police and Crime Commissioner, members and officers from Lichfield District Council, and Staffordshire County Council members, along with additional family and friends.

Cllr David S Smith, Chairman of Lichfield District Council, said: “I was honoured to share this service with the people I work with and those that contribute so much to Lichfield District.

“I would like to thank Lichfield Cathedral for a beautiful service and for everyone that came on the day.”
