DUNMOW Town Council appointed a new mayor at the town’s annual meeting last week.
Phil Milne received unanimous support from the council to take up the post for the first time.
Cllr Milne, who selected Jonathan Cadwallader to be his deputy for the 2013-14 mayoral year, said: “I would like to thank everyone in the town council for their support. It’s a great honour for me to be appointed mayor. I am looking forward to a busy year.”
Cllr Milne’s chosen charity for his year in office is the Dunmow & District Stroke Support Group, of which he is chairman. However, he has also expressed a desire to raise money to buy toys for independent toddler groups.
At a small ceremony held at Dourdan Pavilion, Cllr Milne was given the chain of office by outgoing mayor John Davey.
