The new Mayor of Market Weighton aims to improve car parking and keep a close eye on housing development in the town over the next 12 months.
Councillor Marian Frith, who was the town’s mayor from 2007-09, has taken over the chains of office from Coun Peter Hemmerman, who was mayor for the last three years and is now Deputy Mayor.
Coun Frith said: “I am pleased to take on the role.
“I was asked if I was interested and I didn’t have to think about it a great deal. I’m happy to do it. I enjoy the extra work.”
