The Annual General Meeting of the Council was held yesterday evening. Councillor Genevieve Hibbs was voted in as the Mayor for the next year. I thought that she addressed the Council very well and I wish her all the best for the forthcoming year.
It is worth saying something about her predecessor, Councillor Andy Morgan-Watts. I thought that he was a truly first class Mayor, indeed one the best I have ever seen or known. It was always very clear how much the role meant to him. He Chaired meetings very well and, more importantly, he engaged with hundreds (maybe thousands) of people during his year and raised an incredible amount of money for the Mayor’s charity. I wish him the best for the future also.
