The Mayor of the Borough of Melton 2018/19 – Councillor Pru M. Chandler

portrait of Cllr Pru Chander

Councillor Mrs Chandler has lived in the Melton Borough since 1963 when she married a farmer and moved to Muston near Bottesford, where she still lives.

Councillor Mrs Chandler’s involvement with Local Government came about in 1988 when she was elected to Bottesford Parish Council, having served as a Parish Councillor until 2007, chairing the Parish Council from 1993 until 2003.   

Councillor Mrs Chandler  was elected to the Melton Borough Council in 2003 and during that time has chaired the Planning and Governance Committees.  Laterly, she has been the Lead Member on the Local Plan Working Group which hopefully will be adopted by Full Council this coming autumn.

Councillor Mrs Chandler’s main interests are a love of the countryside and the changing seasons which are very much a part of the farming calendar.   The new Mayor has a love of the open air and is a keen gardener; on her interest in sport, she says:   “In my younger days l played both tennis and badminton for Grantham, whilst my playing activities now are indoor Bowls.   My interest in all ball sports means that l am an avid viewer of T.V. sport.   I have a son and three grandsons who are all Nottingham Forest supporters whilst l was brought up to support Leicester City, which causes many family arguments !”
