A NEWLY-APPOINTED council chairman has celebrated his selection with a special reception.

Nigel Wilkin, Breckland Council’s new chairman, made sure guests got in the spirit of things at his official reception hosted by St George’s Whisky Distillery, in Roudham, last Friday.

More than 100 guests attended the reception, including the Deputy Lieutenant of Norfolk Nancy Briggs, MP George Freeman and various Suffolk, Norfolk and Breckland dignitaries.

Cllr Wilkin said: “It would go against the grain not to choose a local venue to host my reception.

“Everyone had an interesting and enjoyable evening and we were all impressed by just how much the Nelstrop family have achieved in only four years.”
