HAVANT’S new mayor will be sworn in tomorrow.

Councillor Paul Buckley, who represents Waterloo ward, will take over from Councillor Gerald Shimbart who served as mayor alongside his wife Elaine, who is also a councillor.

The ceremony is at 11am in the Council Chamber of Havant’s Public Service Plaza.

Later in the month, on Sunday, May 19, a civic service will be held at St George’s Church, in Waterlooville town centre.

The civic service was held at the same church last year because Councillor Shimbart’s ward is in the same area.
