Sevenoaks Mayor’s Fund
Thank you for visiting the Sevenoaks Mayors Fund website.
It is an honour to have been elected Mayor of Sevenoaks and to have the opportunity over the coming year, both to promote the town, and to thank all those who contribute in a myriad of ways to building and supporting our local community.
Your Town Councillors – from whatever party – are dedicated to making Sevenoaks a wonderful place to live in, work in and visit. We are an activist council, with fantastic staff and a nationally recognized track record for delivering worthwhile community projects. As Mayor, I will be looking to gather local views on how the Town Council should be shaping its future strategy.
My own association with Sevenoaks stretches back to the 1960s. I grew up and was educated here. My career with the Diplomatic Service took me away from Sevenoaks for some 25 years. But the homing instinct was strong. My wife, Madeleine, now teaches at St Thomas’s primary school and our three daughters were all educated locally.
During my time as a diplomat, I was posted to a range of conflict- torn environments and worked very closely with members of our Armed Forces. I therefore have some understanding of the stresses and strains that so many soldiers, sailors and airmen have had to endure in recent years. For this reason, I have chosen SSAFA as the Mayor’s principle charity this year. I hope very much that I can help raise SSAFA’s profile locally, encourage some new volunteers to signup and raise some much-needed funding. In addition to SSAFA, the Sevenoaks Air Cadets will also be a Mayor’s Charity, and I will continue to support the two unfinished projects within the Mayor’s Sevenoaks Fund namely the 3G Rugby Pitch at Knole Paddock and Stag refurbishment.
