Councillor Mike Cole, Town Mayor of Thatcham 2019-20
On Sunday 12st May Councillor Mike Cole was elected as the Town Mayor of Thatcham during the Annual Meeting of Thatcham Town Council with Mayor Making ceremony.
Councillor Mike Cole appointed his wife Mrs Mandy Cole as Mayoress and Revd Mark Bennet from St Mary’s Church as the Mayor’s Chaplain. Councillor John Boyd was elected as Deputy Mayor.
Mr Mayor has selected two charities to support during his year. The first is Daisy’s Dream – a small charity, based in Berkshire, which supports children and young people who are facing, or have experienced, the death of someone close. Their team of six part-time, professionally qualified Therapeutic Practitioners offer 1:1 sessions on an outreach basis, for as long as is needed. They also offer over the phone support to parents, carers and professionals working with bereaved children, together with group events which serve to breakdown the sense of isolation often felt by families affected by bereavement. All of their work is provided completely free of charge.
The Mayor’s second charity is Young People and Children First, based in Thatcham, they support Foster Care Leavers as they transition from being teenagers to independent adults. They ensure that the young people have all the right building blocks in place to go confidently and positively into adult life so they can reach their potential, not hindered by their troubled start. Above all, they prevent disadvantaged children and young people being homeless.
Councillor Cole said “I am looking forward to this year and hope to meet as many residents as possible. I can be contacted via the Town Council Office at *protected email*”
