PICTURES: Worthing Mayor Making

NEWLY-installed mayor Bob Smytherman has pledged to raise awareness of mental health charities and “put Worthing on the map” during his tenure.

He was officially sworn-in during a high-spirited meeting of Worthing Borough Council at the town hall on Friday, replacing outgoing mayor Cllr Charles James.

Mr Smytherman, who has spent the past year as deputy-mayor, promised to serve his home town to the best of his ability.
