MAYOR ALTREE – A NEW ERA

History was made last night as Barrow Town Council gathered for the first time after the elections on May 4th.

 

Among various appointments, the first decision of the night was to elect Labour’s Chris Altree as the new mayor of Barrow..

 

A delighted Mayor Altree said,

“It’s the honour of a lifetime for this Barrow lad, to be mayor of our wonderful town. I will spend this year celebrating all that we have to offer. I believe my job is to shout about it from the rooftops and anyone who’d like me to highlight their work, please get in touch.”
