New Mayor for borough starts next week

CURRENT Erewash Mayor Cllr Robert Parkinson will step down at a council meeting next Thursday.

Deputy Mayor Cllr Kevin Miller is due to take over the civic chains at the annual Mayor making ceremony at the first full meeting of Erewash Borough Council since the election on May 5.

Each Erewash Mayor wears the chains for one year, and it is usual practice that the deputy Mayor is next in line.

Mayors are usually picked from the leading group, which is currently Conservative, but have to be voted in by members.
