Mayor welcomes new citizens

Civic mayor Eva Hughes was delighted to welcome new British citizens to the Mansion House.

The new citizens make an oath or affirmation to Her Majesty the Queen and a pledge of loyalty to the United Kingdom.

As well as being welcomed into the local community, at the Mansion House ceremony they have the chance to meet other people in the area who are also becoming British citizens.

Coun Hughes said: “The citizenship ceremonies are an opportunity to welcome everyone, congratulate them on their citizenships and wish them well in their new life in Doncaster.”

Yasemin Orhan, originally from Turkey, said: “This has been a very exciting day for us and we have received a very warm welcome.”
