While Adur chairman Mike Mendoza has a weekly column in the Shoreham Herald, Mr Smytherman felt it was more in-line with his ambition to be a ‘multimedia mayor’ to have a weekly video column.
The video will be a chance for him to highlight some of the many engagements he attends, and increase awareness of various causes.
He will have just 60 seconds in which to do so.
This week, the mayor will be visiting the NAS Worthing branch free school for West Sussex event, officially opening Worthing Hospital’s new cardiac cath lab, and attending the Adur and Worthing Business Awards - among various others.
