Looking forward to May 2017

201705xx calendar ab0337h
On 8th May, I’m to be nominated by the Labour Group to be the Lord Mayor of Nottingham for a civic year.
I understand of course that people see it as an honour, but I do see it as a job, with the chance to do more about working up the popular telling of Nottingham’s stories.
Note, I still continue as a ward Councillor.
