Tameside's new mayor to be installed next week

Tameside’s new mayor is due to be installed next Tuesday.

Cllr Janet Cooper, who represents the Longdendale ward, will become the 47th civic mayor of Tameside.

However, because of the Covid-19 restrictions the usual annual full council meeting will be taking place remotely.

It means a little piece of history will be made with the mayor’s office changing hands at a virtual event. 

Members of the public can watch a webcast of proceedings via the Democracy pages of the Tameside Council website: www.tameside.gov.uk 

It is hoped the ceremonial aspects can take place later in the year after lockdown has ended.

Cllr Cooper will be taking over the mayoral chain of office from Cllr Leigh Drennan.
