On Thursday 19 May we celebrated the ceremonial appointment of Cllr Emily Price as the new Mayor of Totnes. We welcomed Cllr Georgina Allen as Deputy Mayor and gave a vote of thanks for the retiring Mayor, Cllr Ben Piper.
Cllr Price said: “I’m very proud and honoured to have the opportunity to serve this remarkable town as Mayor for the coming year. I hope to be able to do justice to the role and to serve the citizens of Totnes to the high standards they deserve. I have big shoes to fill, both in terms of the hundreds of years of illustrious citizens who have served as Mayor before me, and in terms of my immediate predecessors, Councillors Ben Piper and Jacqi Hodgson. In the most difficult of times, Ben and Jacqi have worked tirelessly, and with enormous commitment, to help the town through the pandemic and steer the council through so many additional obstacles and challenges. I am extremely fortunate, and grateful, to be able to call on their experience, guidance and wisdom over the coming year”.
