Today I stand down as the Mayor of the Borough of Surrey Heath. At tonight’s annual meeting a new Mayor will be installed.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me over the past Mayoral year. My family and extended family, you know who you are, have been amazing especially Dave, my husband, who stepped up to the mark not having a clue what it was all about. I have met some very interesting people and been to places I would never have known about.

We are blessed with an army of volunteers in our Borough. Without them life in Surrey Heath would be more difficult for a lot of people.

I have been truly blessed this last year and have had an amazing time. But now it’s time to throw the high heels back in the wardrobe, throw the tights in the bin and send my dresses to the dress exchange and resurrect my jeans.

Once again thank you EVERYONE who made the journey with me.
