Fazeley’s new Town Mayor was announced on Monday, 13 May 2013, with Deputy Mayor Cllr Simon Clements taking the chain of office for 2013/14.
At the latest meeting of Fazeley Town Council, Cllr Rebecca James handed over the Mayoral chains to Cllr Clements. As Cllr James stepped down, she was presented a framed certificate in honour of her loyal service as Town Mayor and then both Cllr Clements and Cllr Richard McDermid paid tribute to her year in office, for her work carried out as a young councillor, juggling council work and home life throughout the last year.
At the end of the meeting, Cllr Clements announced that his Mayoral charity for 2013/14 will be the Midlands Air Ambulance. He said, “If it had not been for the Midlands Air Ambulance, I would not be standing here tonight. I hope that during my year in office, I can help repay the work carried out by the dedicated crews of the Midlands Air Ambulance.”
Cllr Clements, who has been both Fazeley’s Deputy Mayor and Tamworth’s Mayor Consort during the last twelve months, was joined by his wife, Cllr Tina Clements (Tamworth’s current Mayor), daughter Kirsty and friends on the prestigious occasion.
