We now know who has been selected to be the Mayor of Eastbourne for the next year.
Councillor Pat Hearn, who is the current Mayor for the town, has been proposed to stay on in the role and is currently Mayor Elect.
Speaking to Eastbourne Buzz, Councillor Hearn said, “I am really delighted to have been asked to continue as Mayor for Eastbourne. It is a real privilege to hold the position for one term, let alone two and I am thrilled to be Mayor Elect.
“I am really looking forward to the year ahead, getting to catch up with those I’ve already met in my time as Mayor and I also look forward to meeting lots of new people and seeing how I can help them. I am in a very fortunate position, where I can introduce people to those who may be able to help them, and it is always a great pleasure when I can do that.
“I am also looking forward to continuing to promote Eastbourne as a fantastic town in which to live, work and to visit.”
The Mayor making will be taking place at Eastbourne Town Hall on 17 May.
