Mayor's diary

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many planned events over the last year had to be cancelled.

It was good to see that people found new 'virtual' ways of coming together. This meant the Mayor and Deputy Mayor could continue with some community engagements.

As restrictions ease, the Mayor will continue to welcome invitations to online events. We also welcome invitations to live events that are Covid-19 secure.

If you have any queries about future events, email
