New mayor chosen for Southend

Cllr Kevin Robinson has been elected as Southend’s 101st Mayor at today’s full council meeting.

He takes over from Cllr Margaret Borton who has served as the Mayor of both the borough and city of Southend-on-Sea this past year.

The annual mayor making ceremony took place in the civic centre council chamber and was attended by the High Sheriff, members of the faith community, council officials, family members and friends.

The Mayor’s main charity fundraising efforts for this municipal mayoral year will be for the St Vincent’s Centre in Southend which is a busy community hub supporting vulnerable people with foodbank services, hot meals, in and outreach support, and household items and clothing.
