The Mayor

Peterborough City Council elects a Mayor to serve for one year. The Mayoral year is always busy and the Mayor will attend many functions including formal civic events and the annual meeting of the Council. At the beginning of the year the Mayor will nominate charities which will receive the proceeds from the fundraising undertaken during the year.

The Mayor receives many invitations to events and functions throughout the year and so many of these are attended by the Deputy Mayor when the mayor is booked elsewhere.
