David Whitby, the current deputy mayor of West Norfolk, has been nominated to serve as borough mayor for the new civic year, which begins next month.
The announcement was made this afternoon ahead of the traditional mayor making ceremony, which takes place at the council’s annual meeting in Lynn Town Hall on May 12.
Mr Whitby, who represents Clenchwarton where he was born and brought up, was first elected to the council in 2011.
He has served as deputy to the current mayor, Colin Manning, for the past year.
The council has also announced that Hunstanton councillor Carol Bower has been nominated to serve as Mr Whitby’s deputy.
And the mayor’s charity for the coming year will be the Lavender Hill Mob theatre company.
