COUNCILLOR Peter Webb was elected the Mayor of Upton upon Severn for a second term this week.

At the council's Annual Meeting, councillors voted unanimously to Cllr Webb to remain in the position for another term.

Mayor Webb said: " After a rather tense day of not knowing what would happen I was overwhelmed to be re-elected. My year was filled with memory evoking events.

"During last year we saved the Library from closure and by now have a fully fledged Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Apart from a watching brief, our job is done and I wish the trustees well in their efforts on behalf of the community.

"I look forward to a constructive, hard working year for my community with the occasional flashes of really memorable and enjoyable moments".

Cllr Mike Ostick stepped down as deputy mayor, and after a vote within the Town Council, Cllr Tim Dance stepped into the position.

Cllr Dance and Cllr Les Roberts were nominated to stand for the position, with Cllr Dance winning the election by seven votes to five.

The council elections were decided on Tuesday, May 20.
