Updated: YORK’S new Lord Mayor will be officially appointed at a ceremony tomorrow.
Coun Paul Firth will assume the title of Sheriff of York from Alan Deller.
City of York Council’s chief executive, Kersten England, will mark the day by reading a proclamation in the city centre and more than 150 guests will attend the annual council meeting at Guildhall, starting at 11am, where the new mayor will be appointed.
Following the ceremony, the civic party will process through the centre of the city, accompanied by the York Waits – musicians who take their name from the city’s ancient band – and eight members of the York Guard.
