At the annual council meeting on 10th May 2018, Cllr Paul Peacock was re-elected as the town mayor of Hythe for the municipal year 2018/2019. A long serving town councillor, Paul works locally and is also a Folkestone and Hythe district councillor. The town mayor is the first citizen and is elected annually. The Town Mayor chairs full council meetings and represents the town at civic and ceremonial functions.
Cllr Peacock was elected as a Town Councillor seven years ago at the 2011 elections and was also town mayor for the last year. Cllr Keith Miles was elected as the Deputy Mayor. Both Councillors will serve their roles for the year 2017/2018.
At the meeting, Cllr Peacock appointed his wife Mrs Wendy Peacock to be mayoress to assist with the various civic functions.
Each year the Mayor carries out a number of fund raising events. Funds raised through these events will go towards a charity chosen by the Mayor for this municipal year. At the mayor making ceremony, thanks were giving to the retiring deputy town mayor Cllr Ann Mayne for all her work over the past year.
The town mayor will be pleased to attend worthy organisations on request. To invite the town mayor for a visit or event, please contact Hythe Town Council on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the office on 01303 266152.
