Every year, in May, the Town Councillors elect one of their fellow Councillors to become Town Mayor for the year. The Town Mayor is usually the Deputy Town Mayor from the previous year.
At Congleton Town Council Meeting on Thursday 23rd May 2019 the Councillors elected Cllr Sally Ann Holland to serve as Town Mayor for this Civic Year.
The Town Mayor raises funds for a local charity or charities of their choice. The Mayor also Chairs the Council meetings, hosts a Civic Parade in May or June and a Mayor’s Ball in March. The Mayor attends many functions on behalf of the people of Congleton. These range from opening garden parties, to school visits, attending functions in neighbouring towns to helping switch on the Christmas Lights.

Town Mayor’s Cadet Scheme
The Town Mayors Cadet Scheme was introduced in 2009 by the then Mayor Councillor Denis Murphy. Each year a new Mayor’s Cadet is recruited from the various Youth organisations in Congleton.
This year, Eloise Williams from Congleton Rangers was selected as the Town Mayor’s Cadet and as such will accompany the Town Mayor on many of her official duties.
