A NEW Mayor of the Borough for Hinckley and Bosworth was installed at an annual Council meeting last night.
In last night’s Council meeting (18 May), which was held in a socially-distanced fashion at Hinckley Rugby Club, Lib Dem Cllr. Ted Hollick, of the Groby Ward, was elected as the new Mayor.
He takes over the title of Mayor from Cllr. Lynda Hodgkins.
During the meeting, dignitaries paid tribute to the outgoing Mayor, Cllr Lynda Hodgkins, and welcomed Hollick as the the new Mayor.
A new Mayor is usually installed each year to represent the Borough, but Cllr. Hodgkins remained Mayor for two years last year instead of 12 months, due to the ceremony being postponed as a result of the Covid-19 restrictions.
Cllr. Hollick was first elected to the Borough Council back in 2015.
He has been married to his wife, Ann, for 48 years – they have three children and four grandchildren.
During his year as Mayor, he is set to be helping out fundraisers and charities.
He will be supporting and raising money for Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, and the Dogs Trust.
His chaplain will be Reverend Noel Colley of St Philip and St James Churches in Ratby and Groby.
When he is away from the Borough Council, he enjoys photography.
He used to enjoy singing with the Leicester Male Voice Choir.
Deputy Mayor further appointed
Cllr. Dawn Glenville, who serves as the Liberal Democrat Cllr. for the Burbage St. Catherine’s and Lash Hill Ward, was chosen as the Deputy Mayor.
Cllr. Glenville’s Consort will be Mr. Barry Walker.
