New Mayor in Office

It is a great honour to be elected as Mayor of this historic town in which the office dates back to 1674. Perhaps as a historian I know more than many in the room tonight about some of my predecessors in office, some I would wish to follow and others have made their mark in other ways.

Thank you Vince and Amber
