Bazaars, sales of work, etc

The Mayor and Deputy Mayor are willing, whenever possible, to open bazaars, sales of work, etc. for charitable purposes. They should not be asked to open on the second day (if any) unless the first day's bazaar or sale is to be opened by a member of the royal family or the Lord Lieutenant.

Deputy Mayor

If the Mayor is unable to attend they may ask the Deputy Mayor to attend in their absence. The Deputy Mayor is Councillor Munir Ahmed. 

Arrival and departure

The Mayor tries to fulfil as many engagements as possible and as such he may have to arrive at a later time or depart before the end of the function. Whenever possible you will be notified in advance of the expected time of arrival and departure. Your co-operation in this matter would be very much appreciated.

It is customary for the Mayor to be greeted on arrival and escorted from the venue at the time of departure.
