Invite the Mayor to an event

Arranging a Mayoral visit

The Mayor and Deputy Mayor regularly attend local functions in the community. However, due to the impact of COVID-19 and the need for us all to comply with the latest Government guidance, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor are not routinely attending events 'in person'. However, they are happy to join virtual or online events so please do get in touch.

If you feel that your event can comply with the latest Government guidance on gatherings and social distancing and you would like to request a Mayoral visit, please complete the request form. You will be asked to include a risk assessment setting out the action you will be taking to comply with the Government guidance, for example, signage and cleansing measures.

The Mayor’s Office will not usually accept events that will lead to unnecessary social gatherings, or those where the attendees will be particularly vulnerable, such as care homes.

Your form and risk assessment will be reviewed by the Mayor’s Office which will be in touch ASAP.

The Mayor is happy to be invited to:

  • Chair Annual General Meetings
  • Visit schools and voluntary groups
  • Open fetes/garden parties
  • Attend sports and charitable events

Any requests for attendance at engagements or general enquiries relating to the Mayoralty should be directed to the Mayor's Secretary, Mrs Pat Battista.
