The Mayor

The new Mayor of Gedling was elected at the council's AGM in May. Labour Councillor for the Netherfield ward, Barbara Miller will replace the outgoing Mayor, Councillor Viv McCrossen.

“I look forward to meeting residents and community leaders from all parts of Gedling Borough. I wish to promote Gedling as the ideal place to live, work and play. This is my firm belief.

I am a people person, I listen and I learn. I believe you can never plan the future by the past. Gedling is moving forward continuously and gaining momentum on its journey.

I am both humbled and proud to be proud to be the Mayor for the coming year.”

The newly elected First Citizen of the borough, Councillor Barbara Miller has been a Councillor since 2007.
