Town Mayor 2022

“I am truly honoured to be given the opportunity to represent Ashby de la Zouch as your Mayor for the new civic year. In this regard I would like to thank the Leader of the Town Council, John Coxon, and the rest of my colleagues on the Town Council for supporting my appointment.


I will do my utmost, with the support of my wife Karen, as the new Lady Mayoress, to represent and promote our special town.

In understanding the duties of the Mayor I know I will be ably supported by the Town Clerk, his staff and all the members of the Town Council.

In terms of chosen charities, myself and Karen would like to support “Canine Partners” and the The Fire Fighters Charity. Canine Partners is based at Osgathorpe and provide assistance dogs for disabled people. The Fire Fighters Charity provides all kinds of help to firefighters personnel and their families. We know many of the firefighters at our local station and appreciate what a great job they do for Ashby and the surrounding area.”
