New civic appointments have been made at a town council.
Councillor Sue Walley has been appointed as the new Mayor of Cheadle, while councillor Nigel Wood has been appointed as Cheadle Deputy Mayor.
The appointments were made at the Annual Meeting of Cheadle Town Council on Monday (May 17).
It had been the first in-person meeting of the town council since the first Covid-19 lockdown last year. The meeting was held at Freehay Village Hall so that councillors and others attending the meeting could adhere to the two metre social distancing rule.
After the meeting, new Mayor of Cheadle Sue Walley told the Times & Echo: “It is a great honour and privilege to be elected as Mayor of Cheadle.
“I would like to pay tribute to councillor Ian Plant who has served as the Mayor for the past three years. He has done a wonderful job during some difficult times.
“For those of you who don’t know me, I have been Mayor on two previous occasions.
“I am married to Keith, have a son and daughter and three grandsons. I enjoy working with young people through my involvement with Beaver Scouts and rugby.”
Cllr Walley added: “The Deputy Mayor councillor Nigel Wood and I look forward to engaging with the people of Cheadle and promoting our lovely town.
“The last 14 months have been difficult for everyone as together we have tackled Covid-19.
“Hopefully we are now starting to emerge and look forward to a ‘new normal’.”
Outgoing Mayor of Cheadle, councillor Ian Plant, has produced a message about his three years as Mayor. See page 3 of this week’s paper.
