Redcar and Cleveland Council appoints new Mayor after Covid delay

A North East and Yorkshire region has announced that it has appointed a new Mayor.

The Redcar and Cleveland Council has appointed Councillor Carole Morgan as the new Mayor of the region.

The area lies within the North East and North Yorkshire, and covers Redcar, Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Guisborough, and small towns such as Brotton, Eston, Skelton and Loftus.

The new Mayor, who has represented the Ormesby ward since 2016, has decided to keep outgoing Mayor, Cllr Billy Wells’ charities, Zoe’s Place children’s hospice and Eva’s Women’s Aid which supports survivors of domestic abuse.

She commented: “I am very proud to represent our wonderful borough.

“It is restricted at the moment as we must all do our bit during the pandemic, but I’m looking forward to meeting people as soon as is possible.”

Deputy Mayor, Councillor Stuart Smith, is former Neighbourhood Police Officer for Saltburn and has served as councillor for the Saltburn ward for ten years.

The Mayor and Deputy will serve until May 2021. This year’s investiture was delayed due to Covid-19.
