County Derry UUP councillor Richard Holmes set to assume the chain of office in Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council this evening, taking over from DUP Mayor Mark Fielding.
The Garvagh man has wasted no time in making his presence felt, and has jointly agreed with the outgoing mayor to facilitate the hearing of legal opinion around a call-in on the Tourism Events Recovery Fund after tonight's Council AGM.
