Cathy Collier became the town’s first citizen at Stone Town Council’s annual Mayor Making ceremony last night, succeeding outgoing Mayor Jill Piggott. Councillor Collier, who is also District Commissioner for Girlguiding Stone District and treasurer for Stone in Bloom, said: I’m very delighted to accept the position for the year. “Jill and her consort have done a wonderful job representing the town and I have certainly got a very hard act to follow.” Her consort was announced as husband Geoff Collier, a fellow councillor and former Stone Mayor in his own right. Councillor Sue Shaw was elected Deputy Mayor and her husband Mike Shaw, also a councillor and former Stone Mayor, was named her consort. Following the official duties the guests, who included the Mayor’s friends and family, fellow councillors and council staff and Town Mayor’s Chaplain Reverend Ian Cardinal, enjoyed a buffet including cakes baked by Councillor Mike Williamson.
