Councillor Wood’s term ended with the election of a new mayor – cllr Jan Cairns – at a full Sutton Coldfield Town Council meeting on Tuesday.

And Councillor Wood, who represents the Walmley and Minworth ward, said: “I have really enjoyed this year. It has been a pleasure and I’ve had a really good time.

“I have met so many wonderful people in my year as mayor. I got to know a lot of brilliant volunteers who give their time and effort for the good of the area,” he added.

“The community wouldn’t exist without such people. I’m thinking of those in the Sutton Coldfield Litter Group, for example, FOLIO, Friends of groups and more – organisations who make life worthwhile in the town.

“It’s been a privilege to meet these people. We have so much talent in Sutton Coldfield. I’m proud of our town.

“It’s been an absolute honour and I have had a wonderful 12 months."
