Deputy Mayor, Cllr Barry Jackman

Can I say a BIG thank you to all of you who made the campaign such a success and a big thank you also to all those who had to suffer behind the scenes whilst you all pounded the streets, telephoned and co-ordinated all the many things needed to make a success of the campaign during the recent 2 months.

Finally a very happy new year to you all as you take a belated, well earned rest. The townsfolk, schools community organisations and businesses alike will be, I hope most grateful in the future for your grand efforts.

Special thanks of course to Mike, John and Andrew who convinced the town council to back it on behalf of all of us, and for motivating others to pull together and get involved in what was a real community event, well done.

Cllr Barry Jackman.
