Lynn Little has been re-elected as mayor of Carterton for a second term.

Summing up her first term, she picked out the Christmas lights switch-on last November as a highlight.

In a message to residents, Mrs Little, who is married to Rod and has lived in the town for more than 50 years, said: “To me the future is key – keeping hold of Carterton’s individuality whilst striving to make it a place where people want to work, live, raise families, and spend their retirement years.”
