Local authorities were granted a number of emergency powers through the Coronavirus Regulations 2020, including being able to have virtual meetings as well as not to hold the Council Annual General Meeting, at which the Mayor is officially appointed.
Due to the exceptional circumstances, the decision was taken to postpone the borough council's Annual General Meeting; this means that Councillor Mrs Pamela Bryant will remain in office as Mayor for a further year supported by the Mayoress, her daughter, Councillor Mrs Louise Clubley.
The Deputy Mayor, Councillor Mike Ford will remain in office as Deputy Mayor for a further year and the Deputy Mayoress is Mrs Anne Ford.
The Mayor's role is to chair Council meetings and represent Fareham at civic events and functions each year, including award-giving receptions and events organised by local voluntary and community groups.
The Mayor will continue fundraising for her 3 charities, Fareport Talking News, 1350 (Fareham & District) Squadron Air Training Corps and Rowans Hospice.
