March 2023 Update from The Mayor

The year is suddenly flying by since Christmas as hopefully we head towards Spring and warmer weather and there are a number of events that I am sure the readers will wish to know about.

On Saturday 18 March I will be delighted to host this year’s Mayor’s Dinner Dance with my wife, Ann at the Whittlesey Manor Leisure Centre where the proceeds will be donated to my charities which include Age UKHelp at HomeThe Good Company who provide respite for those suffering from Dementia and their Carers and Phoenix Youth Provision.

Should you require an application form with menu details and booking details then please contact my Town Clerk, Sue Piergianni at Peel House on 01733 351296 or e-mail clerk@whittleseytowncouncil.gov.uk

On Easter Monday 10 April there is the Annual Duck Race starting at the Bower Bridge in Ramsey Road at 2pm. Tickets will be on sale at Peel House and around the town in Blunts Lane and Broad Street on the Saturday morning prior to the event as well as on the day so please come along for what is traditionally a fun family event.

Looking ahead to the Kings Coronation, Whittlesey Town Council will be staging three events over the Bank Holiday Weekend in conjunction with More Muzic Radio.

On Saturday 6 May on North Green Coates there will be a concert headlined by “Rag Dolls” a Four Seasons Tribute Act with local supporting artist(s) and Sunday 7 May at the Manor Leisure Centre “Pure Magic” a Queen Tribute Act again with support.

Both these events will be free to the public followed by a free invitation event for local volunteers at St Andrews Church on Monday 8 May where they will be entertained by the Peterborough Big Band featuring music from Tommy Dorsey to Glenn Miller.

More details of all these events will be published nearer the time.

On Thursday 4 May local elections will be held for Town and District Councillors so whatever your political persuasion please get out and exercise your democratic right by voting for your chosen candidates to ensure the future development for your chosen town or village.

As many readers will know by now I have decided to retire from local government and will not be standing for re-election at Town and District level to spend more time with my family.

It has been a privilege to serve the town over the past 12 years and a particular honour to be elected as your Mayor for five of those years.  I wish my successor as Mayor and all candidates in the forthcoming elections the very best of luck as they continue to strive to serve our town and villages in the years to come

Cllr David  K M Mason – Mayor and Leader – Whittlesey Town Council
