Potters Bar residents will be welcoming a new Hertsmere mayor at upcoming events after the role was officially passed on for another year.

Cllr Pete Rutlege passed on the mayoral chains to Cllr Charles Goldstein, who was inaugurated at the annual council meeting last night (Wednesday). The new deputy mayor, Cllr Brenda Batten, was also welcomed.

Fundraising events held by Cllr Rutledge included a skydive, quiz night, football tournament and curry night, as well as attending over 200 engagements.

He said: “It’s been a privilege and pleasure to serve as an ambassador for Hertsmere Council as mayor.

“During the year, my wife Jane and I have had the pleasure of meeting lots of fantastic people and organisations and we’ve been overwhelmed by the warmth of hospitality extended to us at the many mayoral events we’ve attended.”

Cllr Goldstein said: “I’m looking forward to my year as mayor and representing the residents of Hertsmere as their first citizen. It is a great honour.”

If you would like the mayor to attend one of your events contact his secretary on 020 8207 7477 or email mayors.secretary@hertsmere.gov.uk.
