“My father Keith Strangwood was twice deputy mayor and I am proud to follow in his footsteps.

She added: “I'm Banbury born and bred and I have seen much change to the town over the years. Much has been positive but some not always for the good.
“There are many diverse aspects to our wonderful town, and as mayor I hope to bring people from all walks of life together to appreciate Banbury as much as I do.”
