In an official ‘Mayor Making Ceremony’ on Thursday, 11 May, a new Town Mayor was elected to preside over Petersfield for 2023/24.

Departing Town Mayor Peter Clist handed over the badge, chain and duty to local town Cllr JC Crissey who had previously been the deputy mayor for the town.

Our roving reporter Jo Gray caught up with Cllr Crissey, Petersfield’s first American Town Mayor, afterwards in Petersfield Town Hall Chamber in his first interview in the role.
