THE new Mayor has chosen for the coming year to represent the borough.

Councillor Douglas Auld, of Petts Wood and Knoll, was elected by councillors at the annual council meeting last Wednesday and picked Kent Association for the Blind (KAB) as his charitable organisation.

Councillor Auld said: "It is a great honour to be appointed mayor and to represent the marvellous borough of Bromley. With the post comes the responsibility and duties which I willingly undertake on behalf of all the residents.

"I look forward with the Mayoress to meeting as many as possible of the people who live in, work in or who visit the borough."

Manger of KAB Bromley, Catherine Evans, said: "We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen. It will mean that we can continue to raise our profile locally and raise some much needed funds to carry on working with blind and partially sighted people."

The council also nominated Leader of the Conservative group, Stephen Carr, of Bromley Common and Keston ward, as Leader of the Council for the sixth year running.

Portfolio responsibilities for the year ahead were due to be allocated at the Executive meeting last night.

The Liberal Democrat and Labour members of the Executive continue to be Councillors Reg Adams and John Getgood respectively.
