Stamford councillor Breda-Rae Griffin to continue as chairman of South Kesteven District Council
The Stamfordian chairman of South Kesteven District Council will continue in her role for an extended time as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Breda-Rae Griffin became chairman in September last year and will remain in post throughout the 2021-22 civic year.
The vice-chairman, Ian Stokes, who was appointed at the same time, will also continue.
Coun Griffin, a former teacher, represents Stamford All Saints ward on the district council and Coun Stokes is the member for an area north of Grantham.
Coun Griffin said: “I feel very privileged to be able to continue in the role of chairman. The last 15 months have not been easy for many people, and I hope there is now light at the end of the tunnel.
“From a personal point of view, I hope to be able to increase the number of events I attend and, equally importantly, the number of residents of South Kesteven I meet.”
Coun Griffin's chosen charities are the Stamford-based Clic Sargent cancer charity for children, and the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
Her official duties for this month include virtual attendance at the Inspire Mini Olympics, unveiling picnic benches in Wyndham Park that have been donated by the Rotary Club, and the Armed Forces Day flag-raising ceremony at St Peter’s Hill, Grantham.
