The Role of the Mayor

The Mayor has two important roles to fulfil; as a symbol of the Borough and as an expression of social cohesion.

The Mayor with their Insignia and traditions of office acts as a figurehead and a symbol of continuity and has the prestigious role of representing the whole Borough during their year of office. As its representative they can influence public perception and enhance the image of the Council.

While fulfilling the many engagements that crowd the official Diary, the Mayor has the opportunity to act as a link between the various groups and organisations visited and has a unique overview of the needs and concerns of the community they serve. The Mayor is also in a position to take out to the community the message and aims of the Council.
