On May 8, the town council elected Samantha Taylor to be the new town mayor and Shane Schucroft to be deputy.

Mrs Taylor replaces Karen Pettitt who served as mayor in 2011/12.

The landlady has served as a town councillor for the last four years and has lived in Attleborough for the past 23 years. She attended high school in the town, is married to Stephen and has four children.

The landlady of The London Tavern public house, Sam runs her business with the help and support of her husband and family.

Mrs Taylor and her family support many local and national charities and she is still giving consideration to which worthy cause she will support through her year as mayor.

  • "A publican has been elected as the new major of Attleborough Town Council" -- I think you mean MAYOR, rather than MAJOR. During the First World War, the British Army appointed "town majors" to administer French towns that lay close to the front line -- a rather different role from Mrs Taylor's!
