Tony takes up chains of office

Evesham Editorial 31st May, 2018   0

A RESPECTED councillor has become the new chairman of Wychavon District Council.

Coun Tony Rowley, a former Mayor of Pershore, recieved the chains of office from outgoing chairman Coun Liz Eyre during the annual council meeting earlier this month.

Droitwich’s Coun Sital Harris was elected vice chairman.

Following the ceremonial chain exchange Coun Rowley, said: “Many congratulations to Councillor Liz Eyre on such a successful year – it will certainly be a hard act to follow. I’m looking forward to what is likely to be an exciting and challenging year ahead.

“Whilst I have not chosen any specific charities for the ensuing year, I propose to offer help wherever possible to the voluntary sector, particularly those organisations that work with the socially isolated. In the year ahead I intend to represent Wychavon throughout the district by raising the profile of the Council and promoting its initiatives and continued good work.”

The Chairman’s consort for public engagements will be his wife, Debby Rowley.

Anyone who would like Coun Rowley to attend their event is asked to call the Support Services team on 01386 565201 or e-mail [email protected].
