The Mayor of Wandsworth

The Mayor of Wandsworth for 2023/24 is Councillor Juliana Annan

The role of the Mayor

The role of Mayor of Wandsworth is non-political, acting as the civic lead for the borough leading on matters such as chairing of Council meetings, conducting citizenship ceremonies, and meeting foreign dignitaries and royalty. In addition, the Mayor undertakes and supports a wide variety of charitable and fundraising events and the community life in the borough.

Sometimes the Mayor’s Office is sent requests for assistance with operational front-line matters. We regret that we are unable to assist directly with these requests.
