The money that has been raised through a variety of fundraising events and went to the Bristol Aero Collection and the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Southmead Hospital. The cheques were received by Matron Gil Taylor on behalf of NICU and Lloyd Burnell on behalf of the Bristol Aero Collection.

Speaking at the council’s Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 28 May, Cllr Boulton thanked all those who had donated to the chair’s charity during the year.

Cllr Boulton added: “Over the last year I have had hundreds of engagements and met thousands of people. At every event I have been invited to I was made to feel very welcome and so I have to say the highlight has simply been to meet so many wonderful South Gloucestershire residents.”

Cllr Boulton is succeeded as Chair of Council by Cllr Howard Gawler, the current Vice-Chair of Council, who will hold the post until May 2015. Cllr Gawler in turn is replaced as Vice-Chair by Cllr Matthew Riddle.

Cllr Gawler said: “I am very much looking forward to the year ahead. I will be supporting two South Gloucestershire-based charities during my year in office; the Great Western Air Ambulance which provides such a lifeline to people in need and the Hosanna Primary School Support Group. The group is based in Yate, in association with Brimsham Green School, and helps primary school children at Hosanna Primary in Kampala, Uganda.”

The Chair and Vice-Chair of the council are elected each year at the council’s annual meeting and represent the council at civic functions, as well as chairing full meetings of Council.
