New mayor for Hatfield chosen
A NEW mayor for Hatfield has also been chosen for the civic year.
Town councillor Linda Clark was elected as the town’s figurehead, with Cllr Dave Kay chosen as deputy mayor.
The 64-year-old has previous experience of the office, as her husband, fellow town councillor Mick Clark, 79, was mayor three years ago.
“I’m very honoured to be mayor of Hatfield,” said Cllr Clark. “I’ll be following in the footsteps of my husband, and we’re very much looking forward to getting out and about and being reminded of all the good things going on in the town.”
“We’re interested in what’s going on in Hatfield, but if you do go further afield, which sometimes we do, it’s a chance to promote Hatfield and all the good things that are going on here.
