Councillor Grindell, a Liberal Democrat councillor for Stapleford South East, is incredibly passionate about supporting the local area and its people.

“I’m deeply honoured to take up the role of the mayor and look forward to meeting as many residents as I can,” he said.

“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.”

David takes over from outgoing mayor, councillor Richard MacRae, following his successful year in office – which saw him undertake 211 engagements and raise more than £5,700 for Broxtowe Youth Homelessness.

Councillor Teresa Cullen, a Labour councillor for Beeston Rylands, will assist David as the borough’s deputy mayor.
