Yesterday evening we attended the annual council meeting of Surrey Heath Borough Council. The main item of the agenda is the installation of the Mayor for the ensuing year, and the selection of an accompanying Deputy Mayor.
The mayor making ceremony is an event of civic renewal, inasmuch that the incoming Mayor – Cllr Valerie White – and Deputy Mayor – Cllr Dan Adams – commit themselves to serve the council and the community of Surrey Heath. The outgoing Mayor – Cllr John Winterton – gave the Council a brief report on his year of office, reflecting on the strong community spirit and volunteering of the people of Surrey Heath.
