Councillor Vigar was unanimously voted in as Mayor at the Annual Council meeting on Tuesday 2 May.

A unanimous vote elected Emma Franklin as Deputy Mayor.

“I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to Chair the Council and be Mayor for the coming year and to continue to engage with residents and community groups, as well as to represent the town across the area,” said Councillor Vigar.

“I very much look forward to working with Emma Franklin, who will make a great deputy, as well as with other councillors, staff and volunteers.”

Councillor Franklin added: “It is my honour to be accepted as Deputy Mayor for this year, growing up in Bradford on Avon gave me a wonderful childhood and it would be fantastic to give, some of my energy, back to the town.

“There are so many projects underway and to see them completed will be a huge achievement.

“I look forward to working closely with all councillors, office staff and having worked closely with Councillor Vigar, on previous projects, was a privilege so makes this year more exciting.
