Call for invites to functions

THE new Mayor of Eastwood says he wants to go to as many functions and special occasions as he possibly can during his time in office.

Cllr Brian Griffin said he wanted to be invited along to as many wedding anniversaries, store openings and school events as possible.

“I want to meet as many people in this town as I can,” he said.

“After all, it’s the people that elect the town Mayor really.”

Cllr Griffin was elected Mayor at an Eastwood Town Council meeting last week and was handed the chains by outgoing Mayor, Cllr Ken Woodhead.

Anybody who would like Cllr Griffin to attend an event or a special occasion should ring the town council office on 01773 719 384.
