Every year thousands of foreign nationals apply to become British Citizens. Those accepted can attend a ceremony to complete the process in front of invited guests to witness the proceedings. Councillors are normally invited to these ceremonies if the person concerned lives within their ward. On this occasion I was representing all the councillors in Wychavon.
Right on cue, and in true British weather style, it rained as I arrived at County Hall in Worcester.
