Denis Crawford has become the new mayor of Thetford.
The 66-year-old’s mayor-making ceremony was held at the town’s Guildhall on Tuesday, May 9 and saw him take over the position from previous incumbent, Terry Jermy.
Mr Crawford has pledged to try and “bring the communities together” and aims to be an “ambassador to Thetford” during his year in the role.
Speaking in an earlier interview Mr Crawford said: “I want to get all the community and religious groups in Thetford involved during my mayoral year. We have to include the people of Thetford in everything.
“We have to work to bring the communities together and help each other and to work with each other for the benefit of the town. It is important to be inclusive.”
Mr Crawford was a UKIP county councillor but lost his seat during the Norfolk County Council elections.
Roy Brame is the council’s deputy mayor.
