The Mayor’s Cadet is chosen annually from the Air Training Corps, Army Cadets, Fire and Rescue Cadets, Scouts or Guides.  The Council invites the Commanding Officer or Leader of the various groups to nominate candidates each February.  The Deputy Mayor reviews the nominations and meets the candidates with a view to appointing and swearing in the new Cadet at Mayor Making in May.  The Cadet is presented with a badge of office.  The Mayor’s Cadets duties will be:

  • Attendance at Mayor Making.
  • Participation in Mayoral Processions/Civic Service.
  • Participation in the Remembrance Sunday Parade and Services.
  • Other occasions as requested by the Town Mayor.  It is anticipated opportunities will arise to attend (with the Mayor) a wide variety of local cultural and community events, including those of other local towns and civic dignitaries.

MAYOR’S CADET 2022-2023


Hello! My name is Jamie Duncan, 15, and I am an Explorer Scout with Knutsford District’s Kite unit. I am so excited to have been given the opportunity to become Mayors Cadet for 2022/23.


During this year, I hope to attend lots of varied and exciting events and promote the voice of children and young adults in Knutsford. I intend to give back as much as possible to my hometown and put my all into everything I do!


Outside of Explorers, I am a keen musician, studying music with my other GCSEs at Knutsford Academy. I enjoy the outdoors and love getting stuck into sports such as tennis, squash and cycling.


I hope to see you out and about during this Mayoral term and cannot wait to see what this year brings.
