Cllr Peter Clark, ward member for Ferry, was elected as the 25th Mayor of North Lincolnshire in a ceremony at the Council’s Annual Meeting on 25 May 2021.
Cllr Clark has made history by being the very first mayor of North Lincolnshire to hold the position three times. He was first sworn into office in 2013/14, again in 2017/18 and now in 2021/22 he is set to reign again.
Cllr Clark was the former Deputy Mayor and has now stepped up to succeed Cllr Jonathan Evison, who held the position for two years due to the Pandemic.
At the ceremony, Cllr Clark said he was “proud and honoured” to become the Mayor of North Lincolnshire for a third time and announced that over the coming year both the Sunflowers Children’s Action Group and Lindsey Lodge Hospice are the charities that will benefit from the Mayor’s Appeal Fund.
Cllr Clark said:
“I am very proud and honoured to be the Mayor of North Lincolnshire. My wife, Carol and I consider it a great privilege to be ambassadors for North Lincolnshire.
I look forward to carrying out my duties with real enthusiasm and determination.
I have chosen two charities which are very close to my heart and hope to raise a significant amount for these very worthy causes during my year as Mayor.”
