Congleton Town Council is looking to appoint a new town mayor’s cadet for civic year 2023-2024. The successful candidate will be chosen from one of the town’s uniformed youth groups. Nominations are being received from local groups until 27 April 2023.
Each year a new mayor’s cadet is recruited from the various youth organisations in Congleton. Town Mayor, Cllr Margaret Gartside said: “It is a prestigious and challenging role which young people have enjoyed over the past decade. The town mayor’s cadet is a high profile appointment and as such it is expected that the candidate should be of the highest standard with good interpersonal skills and the ability to interact with a wide range of people. Nominations should normally be a senior cadet aged 14-18 during the term of their appointment.”
In previous years, cadets have been members of the Air Training Corps, The Fire Brigade, the Scouts and Guides. Nominations can be submitted by the group which the young person attends. Groups are requested to nominate one outstanding candidate only who is keen to take on the role and has agreed to be nominated. The town council have written to the youth groups enclosing the application form. Further information on the cadet scheme and a copy of the form can be found on the town council’s website.
The cadet for the new civic year will be appointed during an official ceremony in the town hall on 24 May. The cadet will have the opportunity to attend many exciting events alongside the mayor and gain valuable experience whilst in post. Key engagements will include:
• Mayor Making, 25 May 2023
• Mayor’s Civic Service and Parade, 2 July 2023
• Remembrance Service, 12 November 2023
• Christmas Lights Switch-On, 24 November 2023
• The Mayor’s Ball, 20 April 2024
