"It's my second time I've been mayor of Bourne and I've learnt a lot from the first time which was 2011 to 2012.

"I will do what I can to help the people of the town.

"My main ambition for the year is to get Bourne a skate park.

"I'm one of the trustees and it's something that Bourne needs.

"Stamford's got one, Spalding's got one so why can't Bourne have one?"

The married mother of four with eight grandchildren, who is originally from Sussex, enjoys darts and swimming in her spare time and also runs bingo for residents at a sheltered accommodation complex in the town once a week.

Brenda has lived in Bourne for the past 20, 30 years and was previously a sheltered accommodation complex warden and now works for the housing department at South Kesteven District Council.

Her chosen charities for her mayoral year are Don't Lose Hope and Little Miracles.
