His friend, mayor-elect Councillor Colin Nicholls, said: "Colin has done a lot for the town. We are looking forward to him taking his place again in the community he has served for the past decade. He will come back and we will give him every support we can.
"Although he is retiring I am looking forward to calling on his past experience as mayor."
Mr Sanger had already announced his intention to stand down at the council elections in May.
