Residents for Uttlesford (R4U) has confirmed that at the Saffron Walden Town Council meeting on Monday 13th Arthur Coote was elected as Saffron Walden Mayor for the current year. The mayor is elected by the town’s councillors each year at the first council meeting after an election.
New Saffron Walden Mayor Cllr Arthur Coote said “I feel honoured and privileged to be able to represent our historic town both as a councillor and now as Mayor. I found the role as Deputy Mayor last year particularly rewarding, especially meeting and talking to the many youth and community groups in Saffron Walden. For the next year as Mayor I want to continue with our green agenda, promote local businesses, and focus on our community and inclusivity.”
“On behalf of all the councillors at Saffron Walden Town Council, I’d also like to thank everyone for their support in the recent election. Please join me and other councillors at the official public Mayor-Making event on 1st June. At 10:50am we will process in ceremonial attire with the Town Mace from the Town Hall, through the Market Square to St Mary’s for a church service at 11am.”
