Sudbury has a new first citizen with the appointment of Robert Spivey as mayor - his second time in the role.
He was chosen by fellow members of Sudbury Town Council having served as deputy in the last year to outgoing mayor Sue Ayres.
It is his second time in the role, having served previously as mayor in 2014-15.
"I am very honoured my fellow councillors want me in the job in again," he said.
His agenda will include relieving traffic congestion and maintaining free parking in the town. He also hopes to make progress in implementing the Vision for Sudbury business plan.
