Press Release

14 May 2015

Meet the New Mayor

The new Mayor of Fareham for 2015/16 has been appointed today following the Mayor Making ceremony at Ferneham Hall.  Councillor Mike Ford is now the Mayor of Fareham, and the Mayoress is his wife, Anne Ford.

This year, the Mayor will be supporting two charities which are the Dave Wellman Cancer Trust and Gosport & Fareham Inshore Rescue Service.

The Dave Wellman Cancer Trust (DWCT) was set up in 1999 by Dave Wellman's widow, Tina Wellman-Hawke, and to date, has raised over a quarter of a million pounds towards purchasing and funding equipment for cancer research. 

The Gosport & Fareham Inshore Rescue Service (GAFIRS) is an independent search and rescue facility covering the Solent and Portsmouth Harbour.

Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Mike Ford said: "It is a huge honour and a privilege to be Mayor of Fareham for the 2015/2016 year.  Meeting the many folk that make Fareham such a vibrant place to live is high on our list.  We know that an enormous amount of work is undertaken by many volunteers, charities and organisations within our community.  We are particularly looking forward to hearing more about these and being able to thank many of those involved for their efforts on behalf of our Town."

The new Mayor's Cadet, Cadet Flight Sergeant Gabriella Lashmore from 1350 Fareham Squadron Air Training CORPS has also been appointed for 2015/16.

Gabriella will take part in various duties to support the Mayor throughout the forthcoming year, including attendance at civic events, wreath bearing, church readings and assisting the Mayor's Attendants.
