THE push for a cinema for St Neots will get the full support of the new deputy mayor.
Councillor Fiona Birks, who has lived in St Neots all her life, told The Hunts Post she was ready for her role supporting new mayor, Cllr Robert Eaton.
Cllr Birks told The Hunts Post: "I want to see some positive things done in the town. The town has had many negative things said about it by residents who believe we are being overlooked by Huntingdonshire District Council in favour of Huntingdon, and I want to put a stop to this and get people to feel proud of the town."
The 39-year-old mother of one has not hidden her enthusiasm for a cinema, saying it would benefit the whole community.
