Daventry Town welcomes a new Mayor

Following Daventry Town Council's Annual Town Council Meeting on Tuesday 28th May, 2019, Cllr Mike Arnold was appointed as Mayor of Daventry for the council year 2019/2020. Cllr Arnold has been a Councillor for Daventry Town for 10 years and currently represents Hill Ward.

Of his appointment, Cllr Arnold said, "It is a great honour to have been elected as the new Daventry Mayor, and I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. I have enjoyed my time as Deputy Mayor over the past year and look forward to stepping up to take on this new challenge."

Cllr Lynne Taylor joins Cllr Arnold as Deputy Mayor.

The outgoing Mayor, Cllr Lynn Jones, said, "My year as Mayor of Daventry has been a truly uplifting experience. It has shown me that we have much to be proud of here in Daventry and that we are a valuable asset to Northamptonshire. I have enjoyed the privilege of being Daventry Town Mayor and I hope Mike will enjoy an equally fulfilling time."

Cllr Jones had three chosen charities during her time as Mayor, Daventry Contact, Daventry Street Pastors and the WRVS, who were supported through donations to the Mayor's Fund. Cllr Arnold will confirm his chosen charity for his year as Mayor in due course.

The Mayor attends community events free of charge. If you would like the Mayor to attend one of your events, a Mayoral Engagement Form is available to download here, or you can contact the office on 01327 301 246.
