Cllr. Mrs Rosalie Standley - Mayor of Ware
Cllr. Mrs Rosalie Standley was elected Mayor for the new Civic year at a Ceremony in The Priory on 20th May 2013.
I was delighted when elected to serve the people of Ware in 2011 and honoured to have been given the privilege of representing you as your Mayor for 2013/14.
My husband Mick and I have lived in Ware for 27 years and have 3 children and nine grandchildren.
We both appreciate and want to help conserve the beauty of the town and surrounding countryside and to support and encourage the many community groups who thrive in our town.
The Charities I have chosen to benefit from funds raised during my year of office are Age Concern Ware and Ware Toy Library—both excellent examples of our fine community spirit.
If you have any issues you would like to discuss with me or bring to my attention I would be pleased to hear from you; either directly or via the Town Council office at Ware Priory.
Each year the Mayor chooses one or more charities to support during their year of office. This year the Mayor has chosen:
Ware Toy Library & Age Concern Ware.
Cllr Ian Devonshire was elected Deputy Mayor.
