Mayor of Higham Ferrers 2023-24

We are pleased to announce that following our Mayor Making ceremony on the evening of Monday 15th May 2023 Cllr Nigel Brown has been appointed Mayor of Higham Ferrers for 2023-24. Cllr Vijay Paul has been appointed as Deputy Mayor for 2023-24.

Cllr Nigel Brown made a short speech at the event:

Thank you for coming to Mayor Making tonight.

I would like to thank Cllr Gardner and Cllr Paul for sharing the role of Deputy Mayor last year. I would also like to thank my wife, Jackie, for being a very supportive Mayoress.

It has been quite a year as your Mayor. In September we had the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Of late the recent joys and celebrations of the coronation of King Charles III.

I look forward to the honour of continuing to represent the town as your Mayor and to hosting some more fundraising events which I hope to see you at.

This year I raised £2100 for my chosen charity, Northants Search and Rescue.

I have not chosen a particular charity this year but will be receiving grant applications from community groups and charities within the town for funds from the money I raise.

I will continue to try and be at the monthly Farmers Markets.

Once again, thank you all for coming, and enjoy the evening.
