Thanet District Council's new Chairman has pledged to "promote and support" Thanet over the next year.

Cllr. Margaret Sheldrick, who was elected to the role of Council Chairman in February, was formally elected to continue her role for 2009/10.

Cllr. Sheldrick said: "I'm thrilled and delighted to have the confidence of the councillors who re-elected me for a full year. Over the next year, along with my Vice-Chairman, Cllr. Roberts, we intend to promote and support Thanet. We're very conscious about the current economic climate and, for that reason, we'll be supporting the three town mayors and the efforts of the villages in their charity fund raising efforts, rather than trying to do our own fund raising. As part of that work, we're very keen to support small local charity events. If anyone feels that either myself or the Vice-Chairman can assist in any way, all they have to do is ask."

She added: "I'm also very keen to promote Thanet outside of the area, as I want to ensure that we are noticed and known as a magical place to live, work and play."

During her year in office, Cllr. Sheldrick will be escorted by her husband Ray Sheldrick. Cllr. Michael Roberts was elected as the Vice-Chairman of Thanet District Council.
