The Mayor

Councillor Jan Cover, Town Mayor of Thatcham 2018-2019

Councillor Jan Cover, Town Mayor of Thatcham 2018-19

On Monday 21st May Councillor Jan Cover was elected as the Town Mayor of Thatcham during the Annual Meeting of Thatcham Town Council.

Councillor Jan Cover appointed three escorts to assist her, Mr Jeff Beck, Councillor Julie Goode and Councillor Marigold Jaques. The Mayor’s Chaplain will be Revd Mark Bennet from St Mary’s Church.

Madam Mayor has selected two charities to support during her year. The first is Thames Valley Air Ambulance – Founded in 2000, they are a charity that provides life-saving medical care across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Their doctor and paramedic crews are able to deliver an advanced level of critical care. They can treat seriously ill or injured patients at the scene, fast. They attend around three life-saving incidents per day and are a vital emergency service that only exists through charitable donations and support.

The Mayor’s second charity is Hedgehog Bottom – a rescue centre based in Thatcham, their aims are to care for sick, injured or orphaned hedgehogs using veterinary guidance. To release all animals that are deemed capable of surviving in the wild. To increase public awareness about the decline in hedgehogs, the hazards they face, and to encourage children to respect hedgehogs and take an interest in them. And to assist in scientific and behavioural research as they are able.

Councillor Richard Crumly has been elected as the Deputy Mayor and he has named Councillor Ellen Crumly as his escort.

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
