Pateley Bridge’s new mayor has stepped in to her new role.
Coun Christine Skaife has taked the reins from the previous incumbent – who happens to be her husband.
Former Mayor Ian handed over to his wife on Tuesday, May 7 and the official inauguration will take place at the Civic Service on Sunday, May 26 at Pateley Bridge’s Methodist Churh.
The service will also see retired vicar Peter Dunbar honoured for his 20 years service to the Dale.
Mr Dunbar is to be awarded the Town Shield in recognition of his hard work and dedication to the area.
