The editors of Bramcote Today would like to thank Councillor Richard Macrae for his hard work and successes during his term as Broxtowe Mayor and welcome Councillor David Grindell as he takes over the role.
Councillor David Grindell was installed as the 46th Mayor of Broxtowe on 11th May at the Annual Meeting of Broxtowe Borough Council.
Councillor Grindell, a Liberal Democrat Councillor for Stapleford South East, is incredibly passionate about supporting the local area and its people. He has been involved and supported many local community organisations such as St Helen’s Church, Dig-in Community Allotment, Disability Forum, Stapleford Combined Services Club, Stapleford Community Group and Royal Marines Associations to name just a few.
“I’m deeply honoured to take up the role of the Mayor and look forward to meeting as many residents as I can. During my year in office I will support the work with Mental Health in the community of Broxtowe based in Middle Street, Beeston as well as The White Ribbon campaign to end all violence towards women.” said Councillor Grindell.
In 2005, David became a town councillor representing the Stapleford South East Ward on Stapleford Town Council and first elected to Broxtowe Borough Council in 2011. He served as the Town Mayor of Stapleford twice and as the Deputy Mayor of Broxtowe during 2021/22 Civic Year.
David takes over from outgoing Mayor, Councillor Richard MacRae, following his successful year in office which saw him undertake 211 civic engagements including 3 golden/diamond wedding anniversaries, 3 grant aid cheque presentations, awarding 93 Mayor’s certificates of appreciation in recognition of local people and their efforts to support the local community and raise over £5,700 for Broxtowe Youth Homelessness.
Councillor Teresa Cullen, a Labour Councillor for Beeston Rylands, will assist David as the Borough’s Deputy Mayor.
