The councillor was presented with his chain of office by retiring Mayor Tim Adams at the town council's meeting on Monday night.

He admitted he was 'honoured' to be appointed to the role following his year serving as Deputy Mayor.

Councillor Frosdick appointed Councillor David Pritchard - himself a former Mayor - as his Deputy.

'I just want to say thank you to everyone for their kind words on my selection. A big huge thanks to Councillor Tim Adams for his last two years as Mayor, he has done a grand job and I hope I can live up to that standard.
