THAME has elected a new town mayor at a special ceremony in the town.

Councillor Ann Midwinter was chosen to be the new mayor on Tuesday and incumbent deputy mayor councillor Linda Emery was re-elected to her position.

The new mayor has chosen Sharing Life Trust and Thame Youth Projects as her chosen charities for the year ahead.

She said: “It is a great honour to represent Thame as mayor and I will do my best to do justice to that position.

“I am sure with a team of hard-working officers and councillors, we will overcome all challenges that we might face in the coming year.”
