A COUNCILLOR who works as a landscape gardener is continuing to branch out at the town hall after being elected mayor for a second year.

Green-fingered Alan Roberts swapped his spade for the mayoral chain on Wednesday when he attended mayor-making day.

He said: “I’ve had a fantastic first year and I’m looking forward to a second year. I should be more relaxed as I’ve done it for a while.

“I want to say thanks very much to the people of Hastings who have given me such a great time and memories I will never forget. We are a fantastic town and a fantastic city of culture no matter what the judges say.” Cllr Bruce Dowling (above right) was elected as deputy mayor.
