Sir Peter Soulsby and Manjula Sood MBE

As we all remember, Great Meeting has long been affectionately known as the “Mayors’ Nest”, having historically spawned many of the city’s previous mayors. We are immensely proud that Sir Peter Soulsby became the first elected Mayor of the City of Leicester.

Peter is pictured here, during Great Meeting’s tercentenary celebration in 2008, with our member Manjula Sood MBE. Manjula was awarded an M.B.E. for ‘Services to the community in Leicester’ in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List and also became the UK’s first Asian Lady Mayor.
