It really has become something of a family tradition these days at Horncastle Town Council.
Former Mayor and Town council stalwart Fiona Martin has now been joined by her son, James.
He’s the latest of three additions to the council following uncontested elections last month.
The new Coun Martin, who is married with two children, said he was looking forward to entering the world of politics and focussing on local issues.
And he did promise that if there was something he did not agree with his mother about, he would not back down...even though she has a considerable advantage in terms of experience!
