At the annual ‘Mayor Making’ ceremony on Monday 14th May 2018 the Town Council elected Cllr Peter Coan as Mayor of Knutsford for the ensuing year with Cllr Andrew Malloy being elected as Deputy Mayor.
Cllr Peter Coan has been a member of the Town Council for the last 12 years and served as Mayor in 2010. In addition to chairing Full Council meetings, the Mayor represents the Town at a variety of events both in Knutsford and the surrounding areas. Peter is a retired Firefighter from Cheshire Fire Service and served as Deputy to outgoing Mayor Cllr Neil Forbes.
The Mayor has nominated four local charities/good causes to support with his fundraising events which will run throughout the year: Knutsford Heritage Centre, The Welcome Café, Friends of the Moor and Knutsford Community First Responder Trust. His first event will be a BBQ on Thursday 5th July at the Council Offices.
Cllr Coan said “I’m looking forward to seeing all our council’s latest initiatives come to fruition including the Centennial war memorial, the new market hall and the refurbishment of our cemetery chapel. I look forward to the new and improved community use of our council office building, the improved support to local businesses that our specialist Town Centre Manager will provide, and, of course, our fabulous music festival next month.”
The Mayor will be supported by his wife Ann as Mayoress. Cllr Coan has chosen Air Cadet Max Risley as his Mayor’s Cadet for his term. The Cadet will represent the Mayor and the Town at Civic Functions including Civic Sunday on Sunday 8 July and Remembrance Sunday.
