Local businessman and councillor Rob Skoulding is once more the mayor of March. He was invited to take on the civic role on Monday evening after the former deputy mayor and mayor-elect Kit Owen lost his town council seat in the local elections.
Cllr Skoulding was invited to become mayor for the coming year and another former and recent mayor Cllr Kim French will be his deputy.
He said he would be looking to support local charities and good causes during his term of office.
"One of these is the March Summer Festival which is getting low on funds and I want to help to ensure the event continues to be such a success," he said.
Cllr Skoulding said he would also continue to play a role in supporting the St George's fayre, the Christmas lights switch on and the Christmas market.
