A FELIXSTOWE church was packed to welcome the town's new mayor into office.

Representatives of a wide range of community groups and organisations joined dignitaries for the town's civic service at Trinity Methodist Church in Hamilton Road.

The church service was an opportunity for people to meet mayor Joan Sennington and members of the town council.

Mrs Sennington and her husband Norman moved to Felixstowe nine years ago from Middlesex after retiring - he had enjoyed a career specialising in anti-corrosion work in the shipping industry, and she had worked for part of her life as secretary to the director of a finance house.

She became involved in community life and as well as serving as a councillor is chairman of the League of Friends of Felixstowe Hospitals and the local branch of the Conservative Association.
