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 

The Mayor traditionally chooses a local charity to benefit from fundraising during their year in office. 

This year Cllr Baker has chosen to support Chance to Dance Stars CIC, a dance school for students and families in the disabled community, to support.  Chance to Dance opened in Reading in 2013 with two classes running every fortnight and this has now expanded in 2021 to nine classes taking place between Reading, Coley and Bracknell.

There is a class a specifically for wheelchair dancers and dance movement classes that cater for students who require extra physical support in order for them to get the maximum benefit from the class. The other six classes are split by many factors such as age, physical level, communication, ability to follow instructions and overall concentration.
