A FORMER Weston mayoress and hotelier has died aged 95.
Miriam Prosser and her husband William, who were married for 74 years, ran the Salisbury Hotel in Salisbury Road.
While she was a member of the Hotels and Restaurants Association, she was part of the ladies’ section and helped to raise money to buy a guide dog for the blind.

Their daughter Verlie Edwards said: “She was a very sociable lady.
