Cllr Tony Holden has been elected the new Mayor of Wymondham. Tony currently works as a supervisor for a logistics company in Norwich, but most people recognize him from JP’s coffee shop on Norwich Road in Wymondham. JP’s was a successful business that Tony and his wife Samantha started and ran for 9 years before selling it in 2015. Tony was one of the founders of the Wymondham town team and has been responsible for helping to organizing many events in the town including the very popular carnival. Having been a councillor for only 3 years Tony said “It’s a huge honour to be elected Mayor and I’m looking forward to a very busy year”
“Wymondham is a great place to live and we are very lucky to have so many volunteer groups and a council that is keen to support them.” Looking forward to the year ahead Cllr Holden outlined his priorities at a recent meeting of WTC. These include engaging more with our residents through the use of social media and an improved web site, the council will also be talking to the market traders to find out what can be done to re-invigorate this historic asset to the town.
“This is a very exiting time for Wymondham with so many great projects in the pipeline, including the upgrade of Ketts’ park and the planned artificial grass pitch, the ever-popular music festival, Vintage day and the Ketts’ park woodland project. I’m particularly looking forward to the heritage trail and GoGo hare app’ going live in July.
