The Mayor

The new Mayor of Gedling was elected at the council's AGM in May. Labour Councillor for the Daybrook ward, Sandra Barnes (pictured above right) will replace the outgoing Mayor, Councillor Barbara Miller.

“It is a privilege to be elected as Mayor and I am very much looking forward to meeting lots of local people and groups during the year.”

Councillor Barnes has been a Councillor since 1999 and this is her third term as Mayor of the Borough. As well as representing the council as the First Citizen of the borough, she also chairs Full Council meetings and has the casting vote at meetings, when required.

The Mayor’s chosen charities for her year in office will be the Breathe Easy Gedling Support Group and Support of Children with Asthma. She hopes to raise money to contribute towards new equipment for the charities.
