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 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.  This year’s chosen charity is Butser Home Start.

Profile

I have lived in Petersfield for over forty years and my children and grandchildren attended the local state schools. I was an East Hampshire District Councillor for the past twelve years and a Petersfield Town Councillor as well for the first four. I enjoy patchwork and quilting, gardening when it’s warm and watching the birds at the feeders.
