Councillor Andrew Lay has been re-elected as Maldon Town Mayor for a third consecutive term.

The appointment was made at the council's annual meeting.

Only five councillors have served three consecutive terms as Mayor since 1810 when the office of Mayor was re-introduced following the fall of the Bailiff system.

A statement from the council says: "Cllr Lay's re-election signifies the Council's continued confidence in his leadership and dedication to serving the Maldon community.

"During his previous two terms, Cllr Lay has championed several key initiatives, including the condition of the Blackwater River, the acquisition of Warwick Crescent allotments to protect the future of the site, and support of the various town-based volunteer groups.

"Action for Family Carers Maldon and Farleigh Hospice have been selected by Cllr Lay as his designated charities for this mayoral year. In his acceptance speech, Cllr Lay expressed his gratitude to the Council for their trust."

Cllr Lay added: "I'm honoured and humbled to have been re-elected as Mayor of this wonderful unique historic town.

"I would like to thank my fellow councillors and especially the retiring Deputy Mayor and Mayoress Councillor Martin and Mrs Wendy Harvey.

"Their love of the Town, dedicated service, support, and humour is greatly appreciated."

Maldon West Ward councillor John Driver will be the new Deputy Town Mayor and his wife Mrs Denise Driver Deputy Mayoress.
