Inviting the Mayor to a virtual event
We are actively encouraging you to invite the Mayor and/or Deputy Mayor to virtual events/meetings.
If you or someone you know has a special birthday or anniversary coming up, you can invite the Mayor to join virtually.
You can use our online form to invite the Mayor to a virtual event.
Inviting the Mayor to an in-person event
You can invite the Mayor and/or Deputy Mayor to attend an event in person, but you must follow social distancing guidelines.
Events should be outdoors where possible. If your event is indoors, we will consider it on an individual basis.
For all events, the number of people coming must be within the legal limits.
You should record and keep the details of everyone attending. This will allow effective contact tracing if someone at the event tests positive.
You can use our form to invite the Mayor to an in-person event.
After you submit your request
You will need to give us full details of your event, whether virtual or in person. When you submit the form, you will get an automated email confirming what you have submitted.
We will then discuss your request at our next diary meeting and send a separate email to confirm if the Mayor can attend or not.
We normally ask for at least two weeks’ notice before your event.
If it is less than two weeks, you need to contact the Mayors Office directly by email@example.com or calling 01245 606269.
