The Town Mayor is elected in May each year by The Town Councillors at a Mayor Making ceremony. They will represent The Town Council at any Civic functions or events both in Petersfield and outside of Petersfield and will preside over Full Council meetings held each month (with the exception of August). They will also promote Petersfield as much as they can.

The badge and chain (as pictured) is worn by The Town Mayor and has a picture of The Hampshire Rose on it.

The Town Mayor will choose a specific charity for the duration that they are Mayor and will run fund raising events for this charity. After a year all the money that is raised will be given to the chosen charity.  The 2 charities that The Town Mayor is supporting this year are  Salvation Army Christmas Parcel Appeal and Dementia Friendly Town.

I have lived in Petersfield for over forty years and my children and grandchildren attended the local state schools.
