Councillor Abi Mills, the Mayor of Lancaster, has announced that she is to reduce her public schedule after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

While she still plans to fulfil as many mayoral engagements as possible, treatment for the disease will inevitably mean a reduction in those she is able to attend.

The deputy mayor, Councillor Hamish Mills, will attend events and chair council meetings when she is unavailable.

Councillor Mills will also continue doing case work for the residents in Scotforth West, with the support from her fellow ward councillor, Councillor Tim Hamilton-Cox.

“I am doing well, keeping positive and looking forward to getting back to normal on the other side of this, but thought it was only fair to explain why I may not be able to attend some events or have to miss meetings,” she said.

“We are still planning lots of Music with the Mayor events and other charity events – so watch out for these!”
