Mayor's Announcements.


The Mayor gave an overview of the engagements that she had attended over previous months, particularly the recent World War I commemoration events that had been held across the Borough which she had found very moving. The Mayor congratulated the Officers involved in making the Poppy Proms and Gedling show, which were a great success.


The Mayor also congratulated Officers of the Parks and Street Care team for achieving green flag standards at Arnot Hill Park and Burton Road Jubilee Park, and thanked the Friends of Burton Road Jubilee Park for their work.


The Mayor thanked Councillors Roxanne Ellis, Lynda Pearson and Barbara Miller for their recent help running a stall on Arnold Market and thanked everyone who donated items for sale.


The Mayor invited past Mayor, Councillor Bob Collis, to present a cheque for £15,550.38, raised during his term of Office, to representatives of Emmanuel House and Framework. Councillor Collis thanked those who had supported him during his term of office and the public, who gave generously at events around the Borough. Councillor Collis discussed the vital work that is carried out by Framework and Emmanuel House to provide services to homeless people and expressed a hope that the donation would be used to fund the night shelter and moving on services at Emmanuel House.


Ruth Shelton of Emmanuel House and Andrea Carver of Framework thanked Councillor Collis and Mrs Collis for their hard work over the past year, not only in fundraising, but in raising awareness of issues of homelessness and the work of the organisations.


The Mayor provided information about her forthcoming Autumn Serenade event and ticket availability.
