NEW DEPUTY MAYOR IS 'HONOURED' TO TAKE ON THE ROLE
Ottery St Mary's new Deputy Mayor says he is honoured to take on the role.
Councillor Paul Carter was elected unopposed at the last Full Council Meeting to take over from Josefina Gori, who stood down last month.
Members gave their full support saying the Councillor deserved the recognition for his service to the Council. Cllr Carter has been representing the town for nearly 15 years and is also district Councillor for the rural ward.
At the meeting, he thanked his predecessor for her hard work and said it was a privilege to take up the job.
Ottery St Mary Town Council is pleased to announce that in October 2018, it was awarded a 'Quality Award' under the Local Council Award Scheme ('LCAS'). Further information about the scheme can be found here
GOOD NEWS FOR MOBILE BUSINESSES
Business owners should be aware that some banks are now offering a card machine which will connect to a smartphone or tablet and take payments anywhere.
This is an ideal solution for mobile businesses in the town especially when there is a town event such as Tar Barrels and if any cashpoints run out of cash this will enable them to take money.
For further details, please contact your own bank for details and costs etc.
Two SILENT SOLDIERS have been installed at the Church and at the Library. These are to commemorate the Centenary of the ending of WW1. They were kindly donated by a local resident and installed by Stuart Phillips from Tickety Boo and his team.
OUR FRIENDS FROM OTARI (JAPAN)
The Mayor welcomed a delegation from Otari in Japan to the Council Offices as part of their programme of activities. The delegation also visited the present site of the bell they gave to Ottery St Mary to mark the friendship between the two towns which started in 1992.
The delegation also experienced the Tar Barrel event on 5th November.
A BIG THANK YOU TO SHAW DOG GROOMING
The Town Council would like to thank Shaw Dog Grooming for its very generous donation towards this year’s Christmas Lights. Owner, Samantha Shaw recently presented a cheque for the sum of £240 to Mayor, Paul Bartlett which was kindly raised by herself and customers' donations for dogs’ nail clipping.
