What is the Mayor's role
The Mayor is the first citizen of the Wokingham Borough and is a non-political position. The Mayor chairs council meetings and also attends many functions in the Borough.
This year the Mayor has chosen to support both Homestart Wokingham and First Days Wokingham.
Homestart gives a range of emotional guidance, practical advice and support, to families with at least one child under five. First Days works to reduce the effects of child poverty by equipping them with essential items they need for their early years and at school, also combined with guidance. Their services are each directed at a family with children in urgent need, but the type of provision varies.

Mayor's Roll of Honour
Each month Cllr Richards and his deputy mayor Cllr Keith Baker MBE will select worthy winners from those people nominated by members of the public. There will be children’s and adults’ categories and each winner will receive a lapel badge and scroll to mark their achievements.
Any borough resident can be nominated for an award. To nominate somebody, all you have to do is email the mayor’s office at: email@example.com. Nominations (which can only be made by Wokingham borough residents) should be no longer than 200 words and should set out why the nominee should be considered for the award. For the children’s awards, outstanding achievements such as in sport or arts will be considered.
