The new mayor of Huntingdon has described his election to the post as a “real honour”.
Councillor Jay Dyne was elected by members of Huntingdon Town Council last Thursday at the authority’s annual mayor making ceremony.
He said: “I’m really pleased to be mayor, it is a real honour to fill such a role in Huntingdon and on the town council.”
Cllr Dyne, who has lived in the town for 17 years and has been on the town council for three years, hopes to be able to continue the work of former mayor Councillor Daryl Brown to put Huntingdon on the map.
“I am looking forward to carrying on the great work you [Cllr Brown] have achieved,” Cllr Brown said in his speech to members of the community.
