Deputy set to take over as West Norfolk's mayor
West Norfolk's current deputy mayor is set to step up to the borough's top civic role later this week.
Council officials have announced that Geoff Hipperson will be formally nominated to take over as mayor when the borough council holds its annual meeting at Lynn town hall on Thursday evening.
Mr Hipperson, a Conservative who was re-elected in the Airfield ward earlier this month, has served as a borough councillor since 1999.
