While looking back on his time as Stoke-on-Trent’s first citizen, the retiring Lord Mayor, Councillor Terry Follows, spoke about his successor Councillor Terry Crowe.
Councillor Follows said: “I’ve had a great year as Lord Mayor and I know Councillor Crowe will take on the role in a typically charismatic fashion and I wish him all the best.
“If I could pass on one piece of advice to Terry it would have to be to enjoy and savour every working day and night he gets as Lord Mayor. I’ve had some great times during the past year but my fondest memories are of the many visits to the parlour of some of our city’s young people. I loved bringing them here and telling them about the history of the city and of the council.”
