My first seven weeks as Mayor and Chairman of the Town Council have been very busy.
One of my first meetings was with the new leader of the Borough Council, Cllr Stuart Dark. This was a very positive meeting, and although we will not always agree on everything, we are both agreed on working together for Hunstanton.
I have also been busy giving interviews to Radio Norfolk, the EDP, Anglia News and Lynn News on items including Seaside Award, new homes as principal residences, and litter on the beach and around town. For the latter I was able to highlight the town council's "Slam Dunk the Junk" campaign. My article in July's Town and Around takes the form of an interview by Richard Bird.
Catherine and I attended the Mayor of King's Lynn's Civic Service at the Minster and have also opened the Big Wheel and, this afternoon, the Community Fridge – an HTC initiative led by Cllr Knight to reduce food waste in the town.
I have attended numerous meetings of committees and working panels. I would like to thank all members of these for the work they are doing for the council and town. Together with the Town Clerk, Property Officer and the Town Hall Task & Finish Group members, I have been monitoring the progress of work on the Town Hall.
Finally I want to thank the Town Clerk for supporting me through this busy start to my term in office and also thank the Property Officer for all the work he has been doing at the Town Hall and also over here at the Community Centre.
Cllr Adrian Winnington
