On 23 April 2013 Mayor Edwina Fogg awarded Marlborough Concert Orchestra with a Waits Badge, a custom dating back to medieval times where musicians were rewarded for playing for the Mayor on special occasions. Marlborough Concert Orchestra put on a Jubilee concert for the Mayor in July 2012 and Cllr. Edwina Fogg enjoyed the orchestra’s playing on several occasions throughout her term of office.
The orchestra was thrilled to be given a Waits Badge and David Edwards said, “We are most grateful to Mayor for this honour. It has been a delight to play for the town and the Mayor and her support for the orchestra’s activities has meant a lot.”
