I have also served on the Overview (Audit) Panel which provides dialogue between the Executive and Scrutiny and overviews the Council’s budget and service delivery. I hold the position of Chair of this Panel and I have attended all meetings, in addition to briefings and interviews carried out in this capacity.

Achievements during the Year

This year it has been my privilege and pleasure to be the Civic Mayor of Tameside.

I have attended almost 300 engagements across the borough and have worked extremely hard to be a good ambassador for the Council and the people of Tameside.

I have worked with many charities and voluntary organisations during the course of the year and have met many wonderful, inspirational people along the way.

It has been an honour to be Civic Mayor and it is an experience I will never forget.
