New Yate Town Mayor and Deputy Mayor Elected

At the May 2024 Annual Yate Town Council Meeting, Councillor Ben Nutland (pictured left) was elected as Mayor, with Councillor Aziz Chowdhry (pictured right) elected as Deputy-Mayor.

As the youngest elected Mayor in the town’s history, Ben expressed his gratitude and excitement to be given this opportunity.  In his statement he confirmed that:-

“As a local resident myself, I am looking forward to bringing a wealth of energy and dedication to the role.  I am planning to focus on addressing issues faced by Yate residents whilst celebrating the town’s rich history and culture.”

The Town Council thanked the outgoing Mayor, Councillor Cheryl Kirby, for all her hard work in the community during her two-year term.  Cheryl reiterated that she is very proud to call Yate her home and has enjoyed meeting so many people who have stunned her with their devotion to their causes to better the lives of the people of this town. 

Ben is looking forward to being in attendance at the full calendar of events taking place during the remainder of this year from the D-Day 80th Anniversary Beacon Lighting at Tylers Field on 6th June; the annual Yate Rocks and Party in the Park on 22nd and 23rd June in Kingsgate Park; and the Yate Ageing Better Festival on 17th July, to name a few.  Please do come and say hello.
