Mayor of Bridlington Retains Role

The Mayor of Bridlington is set to stay in his role until next year.

It was decided at the full council meeting last night that the previous Mayor and Deputy will continue their posts until the annual meeting in 2021.

Bridlington Town Council said:

"Normally at this time of year the Town Councillors would choose the new Civic Heads for the Town Council but due to Covid-19 this has not happened.

The Town Council has considered the impact of Covid-19 on the Mayoral Year and have decided to postpone this decision for 12 months which means that Councillor Liam Dealtry with his wife Mrs Michelle Dealtry will stay on as Mayor and Mayoress until May 2021; and Councillor Jackie Foster and Councillor Cyril Marsburg will be retained as Deputy Mayor and Deputy Consort also until May 2021.  

The decision was not taken lightly however the Councillors unanimously agreed that deferring enables the Council to better manage the risks for all, the current Mayor will hopefully be able to complete the civic year with Mayor’s Charity Fundraising events in 2021; and that the future Mayor will hopefully be able to have a more “normal” civic year in 2021."
