Mayor of Crewe & Nantwich

The new Mayor of Nantwich has now been formally sworn in a month late which councillors joked gave him only 11 months in office.

Cllr Andrew Martin has taken over from Christine Farrall, who is stepping down as a councillor after 10 years.

Family, friends and councillors gathered at a Nantwich Civic Hall ceremony on Monday (June 15).

Cllr Martin, who lives in Stapeley with wife Linda and three children, was formally proposed by Cllr John Lewis and seconded by Cllr David Marren.

He said: “It is a privilege to represent the town of Nantwich and we are looking forward to representing all the people, it is important the money we spend stays in the town.

“Christine was elected to the council at the same time as me, and I know she will be a hard act to follow.”

Cllr Norma Simpson has been elected as the Deputy Mayoress for 2015-16.

Tributes were also paid to outgoing Mayoress Christine Farrall, who attended around 120 functions in her year in office.

But Mrs Farrall said it wasn’t the last you had seen of her and she would be back at council meetings representing The Retail Working Group, Nantwich in Bloom, the Civic Society and now the Nantwich litter group.

Cllr Arthur Moran said: “Christine has had a hard-working year. She has attended many events, representing the council.

“But she didn’t just attend – she took part in them and helped organise events such as the Christmas lights, school fest and VE day, which is unique for some mayors.”

Mrs Farrall said: “I’ve enjoyed every minute of it, and I am sure Andrew will make a fantastic Mayor.

“I’ve made many friends for life, and I’d like to thank all the staff at the Civic Centre and my family for supporting me.”

Cllr Martin’s chosen charities for 2015-16 include Nantwich Foodbank, as well as Nantwich Players, Nantwich in Bloom, Nantwich Museum and the Anthony Nolon leukaemia charity,
