Supporting RLI, the Samaritans and Integrated Education, the Mayor has set herself a fundraising target of £30,000.

She also explained to members that while decision making within Council can sometimes be a slow process, the new powers handed down from the Assembly will allow the Council to work closely with residents to create the place in which we all want to live, work and enjoy our lives.

Commenting on the Mayor’s visit, President Gavin said “We’re always pleased welcome the serving Mayor to the Club, but it was a particular pleasure to welcome Deborah as I know she is undertaking an ambitious programme of events during the year.

“And I want to assure members that I haven’t let the fact that her chain is bigger than mine affect my confidence in any way. In this instance at least, size doesn’t matter!”

Some say devastatingly good looking, others simply Matinee Idol, but whichever you prefer, PP Gavin keeps an eye on what appears on the website!
