The Virtual Mayor/Chairman Link to this post

Hi everyone

Happy New Year to you all and I hope everyone had a lovely break.

I wanted to ask everyone how you have coped with retaining the presence of your Mayor/Chairman in the community during lockdown? Have they attended many online community events and do you have a plan of how to keep their role visible over the next few months.

Our Chairman has attended a few online events hosted by her nominated charity but I have struggled to get interest from other community groups.

I would be really interested to hear of you plans and how you have managed?

Thanks so much and keep safe and well.

Hi Amy

We have put it out on our social media channels and our website that the Mayor will meet with people / groups virtually. The up take hasn't been huge, but the Mayor has recorded a birthday message for member of the community who in the past had done a huge amount of voluntary work in the town, and due to COVID was isolated in a local care home and has joined several virtual meetings to for example.

Hope that helps
