Grantham has a new mayor following last night’s mayor-making ceremony.
Coun Linda Wootten received the chains of office from outgoing Mayor Coun Jacky Smith at the ceremony held in the council chamber in St Peter’s Hill.
Coun Mike Cook becomes her deputy. Coun Cook has been deputy before but had to give up the position after suffering a heart attack.
Following many years of tradition, Coun Wootten was ‘dragged’ from the chamber to get ready for her new role.
