Mayor Making 2020

Cllr. Rob Wood has been made Lord Mayor of Portsmouth with his wife as Lady Mayoress. The Deputy Lord Mayor is twice former Lord Mayor Cllr. Frank Jonas and the Deputy Lady Mayoress is his sister.

Congratulations to both. I have been alongside Cllr. Jonas for many twinning related events, here in Portsmouth and also in Caen.

Cllr. Wood made a statement regarding twinning with Duisburg, Caen and other cities in his acceptance speech. Stating that he looks to promote and strengthen the links we have and in particular that we will mark this year's 70th anniversary of twinning with Duisburg in both cities next year once we are clear of the current situation.
