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.


Mayor's charity 

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.
