A COUNCILLOR who represents the Dispatch district villages of Newstead, Papplewick and Linby has been elected as the Mayor of Gedling.
Coun Patricia Andrews (Con) will be Gedling Borough Council’s civic figurehead for the coming year.
She has represented Newstead ward for the past four years and retained her seat at the local elections last month, even though the Conservatives were ousted from overall power at Gedling.
Coun Andrews’s escort will be her husband, Bruce, who was elected as a fellow Conservative councillor for the Ravenshead ward at Gedling.
Her fundraising beneficiary for the year will be the urology ward at Nottingham City Hospital, which specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.
