On 13th May Shipston-onStour saw a regime change!

The traditional mayor-making ceremony saw Gerry Kelly complete his year as Mayor. John Dinnie has now put on the Mayor’s chain, having been voted in unanimously by members of the Town Council. Tony Booth has accepted the nomination to be deputy mayor.

The council gave a vote of thanks to Gerry Kelly for his year of service as Mayor. During his time, he has dealt with many issues and handled them all calmly.

The Council’s proactive working groups have been busy, putting the council in a stronger position as a result of his leadership. ‘It’s been an interesting year,’ mused Gerry, ‘But having worked in the fire service, I have always been resilient.’

Gerry will remain as town councillor.
