Mayor's Announcements.

Minutes:

The Mayor made Members aware of two upcoming civic events that they may be interested in attending; the Mayor’s quiz, to be held on 12th February, and the Annual Charity Ball, to be held on 12th March.

 

The Mayor asked Councillors to spare a thought for former Councillor Magdeleine Roach and Alderman Ivan Gollop who were suffering from poor health.

 

The Mayor reported that he had undertaken a further 43 engagements since the last meeting of Council, totalling 145 engagements in a six month period. The Mayor stated that his favourite engagements have always been and continue to be in schools and that the ingenuity of young people continues to be amazing.

 

The Mayor informed Members that his duties had taken him across the Borough, including Calverton, Papplewick and Burton Joyce. The Mayor had yet to attend any engagements in Stoke Bardolph or Woodborough, but was keen to visit before the end of the civic year.

 

The Mayor noted that it was World Holocaust Memorial Day and informed Members that he had attended a service at the Holocaust Centre earlier in the day, as had Councillor Barnfather. The Mayor was particularly struck by the speech of a young Roma gentleman who had spoken about the prejudice he had experienced and noted how important it was that we take the opportunity to reflect on the events of the Holocaust and the lessons to be learnt from such tragedy.
