Serving the people of Higham Ferrers

Mayor of Higham Ferrers for 2022-23

Mayor of Higham Ferrers for 2022-23

We are pleased to announce that following our Mayor Making ceremony on the evening of 9th May Cllr Nigel Brown has been appointed Mayor of Higham Ferrers for 2022-23. The Town Council were thrilled to be able to hold our Mayor Making ceremony in the Council Chamber of the Town Hall after our two previous ceremonies were held on Zoom and in the Bede House due to covid. Cllr Angela Gardner has been appointed as Deputy Mayor for 2022-23.

Cllr Nigel Brown made a short speech at the event:

I am honoured to be your Mayor for the next year and I would like to thank Cllr Tina Reavey for doing such a great job as Mayor over what has been a difficult 2 years.

I found myself joining the council quite unexpectedly after falling into conversation with Cllr Smithers and Cllr O'Rourke a few years ago, who told me all about how the council worked and encouraged me to come to meetings. I would like to thank them both for their support as I wouldn't be here as your Mayor today without their encouragement.

I am looking forward to meeting the people of Higham Ferrers and also getting out and about in the county representing the town as your Mayor. I have an extremely good Deputy Mayor at my side in Cllr Angela Gardner and the support of my wife Jackie as my Mayoress.

This year I will be holding some fundraising events and my chosen Mayoral charity is Northants Search and Rescue, who do amazing work in and around the county.

I am going to try and attend the farmers market every month and hope to see some of you there.

Any queries for the Mayor or invitations can be directed to the Mayor's Secretary at
