Alfreton has a new mayor after Gail Dolman was installed at the latest town council annual meeting.
Councillor Dolman will serve for the next year as Alfreton mayor after taking over from Cllr John Walker.
She has served on the council for 10 years and said she was delighted with her appointment.
She said: “It’s been absolutely excellent so far.
“I’m really proud and honoured to be representing the town I’ve grown up in as an Alfreton lass.
“My role as mayor has allowed me to go to a lot of places I never thought I would and do a lot of things I didn’t think I’d ever do. It’s busier than I ever expected it to be but all in all I’m having a really good time.”
