Unanimously elected chair

Brian Watson has been unanimously elected as chairman on Nuthall Parish Council.

Cllr Watson served as chairman back in 1998 and left the council for a few years before returning in 2011.

The retired local businessman and Justice of the Peace has dedicated many years service to the youth of the area being captain of the Nottinghamshire 32nd Boy’s Brigade, based at Nuthall Methodist Church.

He not only championed the installation of new exercise equipment on the local park, but was instrumental in encouraging the youngsters to get involved with the council’s sports week.

Cllr Watson has been secretary of the Nuthall Northern Bowls Club for over 20 years and last year set up a regular social bowls event for non-members.
