Mayor's Announcements.

Minutes:

The Mayor provided comment on his year in office, during which time he noted that he had visited more churches than he had in the previous 71 years.

 

The Mayor informed Members that highlights of his year in office included two visits to the Holocaust Memorial Centre, a number of brilliant visits to schools and visits by schools to the Civic Centre.

 

The Mayor declared that it had been a privilege and honour to represent the Borough over the past year. He noted that it was a shame that the office of Mayor leant itself to those who were retired and of means and hoped that there might be a way to enable younger, working Councillors to undertake the role.

 

The Mayor extended thanks to Lorna Mellors, Elections and Members’ Services Officer, for her work with him over the course of the year and to Exclusive Cars, and to Ian Lowe in particular, for their exemplary and professional services as his chauffeurs.

 

The Mayor thanked Councillors for their support in attending a variety of charity events. The Mayor informed Councillors that around £9000 had been raised over the course of the year for We R Here. As a small local charity, the Mayor said, the donation would make a huge difference to the Charity. The Mayor thanked the volunteers and officers from We R Here for their help.

 

The Mayor also gave thanks to friends, family and colleagues who had provided support during his year as Mayor.
