Town Mayor

The Town Mayor for the Year 2017/18 is Councillor Mohammed Nazam. The Deputy Town Mayor is Councillor Amjid Ahmed who replaced former Councillor Dermondy as Town Mayor for 2017/18 who resigned in June 2017.

The Town Mayor is invited to attend local events and functions within the parish. This is done to support the local community, local charities and to promote the Town as a visitor attraction and to mark special occasions or events. This may involve opening an event, making a short speech or perhaps presenting awards or prizes.



Some events are not appropriate for the Mayor (in chains of office) to attend. These may include:

  • overtly political functions/events
  • supporting a controversial event (unless this is supported by Council)
  • anything likely to bring the Office of Mayor or the Council into disrepute
  • appearing for money or gratuities
  • commercial events where there is no obvious benefit to the people of the Town

If you wish to invite the Mayor to an event, please contact the Town Clerk, or alternatively if you know the full details of the event, please complete the Mayoral Booking Form and return to the contact on the form.
