New Town Mayor
New Elstree & Borehamwood Town Mayor
Councillor Clive Butchins has been elected as Elstree & Borehamwood’s new Town Mayor replacing Councillor Richard Butler after his year in office.
The Hillside representative was elected by unanimous vote at the Full Council meeting in Fairway Hall on Wednesday 11th May.
Councillor Butler thanked all the council staff who have assisted him during his time in office before handing over the reins to Councillor Butchins.
In his first speech as Mayor, Councillor Butchins addressed the gallery saying
“I am most honoured by your confidence that I will represent the Town once again with the necessary commitment and devotion. I promise that I will do my very best to fulfil your expectations.”
He went on to say
“Last time I was in this position I said that I wanted to prioritise youth – thinking about the children of this Parish who represent the future for us all. To that end I was able to visit some of the schools, but unfortunately not all of them, so this time I shall aim to at least visit the ones that I have so far missed.”
Kenilworth Councillor Eric Silver was elected as the town council’s new Deputy Mayor and will work alongside Councillor Butchins.
Welcome to …. Teddy’s Trails
Walking is an excellent form of exercise, which requires no special physical strength or expensive equipment – and can take you to all sorts of places which are inaccessible to vehicles.
Elstree & Borehamwood Town Council is sponsoring Teddy’s Trails, to encourage us all to pull on our hiking boots or walking shoes and get out and about on our feet.
What are Teddy’s Trails?
These trails are set of self-guided walking routes through the countryside around the town. They have been reconnoitred and are personally recommended by Teddy, a fox terrier who has been a resident of the town since his puppyhood and is an enthusiastic and experienced user of the local footpath network.
Where are Teddy’s Trails?
Although Borehamwood and Elstree are only twelve miles from Trafalgar Square, they are surrounded by open countryside which is easily accessible on foot. Each trail starts at a point which can be reached by bus from Elstree & Borehamwood station, and each trail leads back to the station.
