Mrs Lea said it was a great honour to have been elected to serve the town for the coming municipal year.

Mr Fitch said: "It is a privilege to have served the town. I'm just glad I have had the opportunity to be mayor and pleased to hand over to Jeanne. I've enjoyed my year and sad to give it up."

Councillor Liz Webster, who was re-elected as council leader, proposed councillor Lea for mayor.

Councillor Lea said she would be supporting the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance during her year in office.
