Mayor and Deputy Mayor to remain in post until May 2021

27 April 2020
Following the decision to delay the council's Annual General Meeting (AGM) both current Mayor, Cllr Terry Piccolo, and Deputy Mayor, Cllr Sue Shinnick, will remain in their current roles until May 2021.
Normally after a year's service the mayor would leave their ceremonial role at the AGM in May, handing over the responsibility – and chains of office – to the current Deputy Mayor, who would then serve as the Mayor until the following May.
Government guidance is that all appointments usually made at the AGM should be held over until the next Annual Council in May 2021.
