Mayor's report - August

On the 15th July, I opened a shop called Betty Com Market in the Town Centre.

Betty Com is a retail business that focuses on bringing the feeling of home to many different cultures.


The Mayor's service took place on 15th July at the St Mary and St Melor Church.

There were 165 Guests at the service/reception.


I would like to thank Amesbury Town Councillors – Cllr Crook, Cllr Swindlehurst, Cllr Strange, Cllr Mitchell, Cllr Hedge, Cllr Hagger, Cllr Knight, Past Mayors, and Wendy Bown the Town Clerk. Mayors with their consorts from other Wiltshire towns and cities were present at this special occasion.

A special thanks to Father Darren - Vicar of St Mary and St Melor Parish Church, the Trustees, and Catherine - Business Manager of Antrobus House, The George Hotel, Amesbury Town Band, and all those who helped to make this event a grand success.


Finally, I would like to thank my family for their outstanding support and generous gifts.


The Mayor's chosen charity on this occasion was The Friends of the Church.


Amesbury Town Council's Summer Event was a grand success which was held on the 23rd July 2023.

It was a delight to officially open the event and meet the people who set up the stalls and the residents who were at the event.

I would like to thank each and every one who worked extremely hard to make the day a grand success.

It is a delight to see that the planning application for the Men’s Shed has now been approved.

The Town Clerk has contacted the architect to say that they should put together drawings for Building Control, as it’s something that has to be done to move the project on.
