Wymondham's new mayor has said he would like to improve online engagement with residents.
Councillor Anthony 'Tony' Holden, formerly deputy mayor, was proposed by the outgoing mayor Robert Savage, and was elected at the Wymondham Town Council AGM on Tuesday evening.
Mr Holden, who has been a councillor for three years, is a supervisor for a logistics company in Norwich, but may be recognised from JP's coffee shop in Wymondham, which he ran with his wife until 2015.
He said: 'It's a huge honour to be elected mayor and I'm looking forward to a very busy year.'
At the town council meeting last night, Mr Holden said his priorities include engaging more with residents through social media and an improved website.
