Thank you for visiting this blog

This is the first post on this blog. Thank you for visiting this site. My aim is to provide a publicly accessible 'web log' of what I do this year as the Mayor of Buckingham.

I was made Mayor at the Annual Statutory Meeting on Friday 5 May 2017 and my term of office runs for a year. Next year, my fellow town councillors may decide to elect me Mayor for a second year - but that will depend on how well I do this year!

UPDATE: I was elected Mayor for a second year on 4 May 2018.

The role of Mayor is essentially a ceremonial one: being the figurehead of the Town Council within the Town, and as representative of the Town outside the parish. The Mayor also chairs meetings of the full Town Council. (There are regalia associated with the Mayor, details of which can be found on the Buckingham Town Council website here).

If you would like the Town Mayor to be present at an event you are organising, for whatever purpose, please contact the Town Council with details of dates and requirements. You can find information about how to contact the Town Council here. Or you can email by clicking here.

I am looking forward to my year ahead!
