Mayor of Amersham 2017-2018 – Councillor Clive Morgan
The new Mayor of Amersham is Councillor Clive Morgan, who was originally elected to serve as an Amersham Town Councillor in 2015. He said, having been a resident of Amersham for 48 years, he was honoured to be elected to the role of Town Mayor in May 2017.
When accepting the role of Mayor of Amersham, Councillor Morgan outlined his priorities, amongst which is to ensure that Amersham continues to flourish for its residents and visitors alike. He is dedicated to using his best efforts to support and encourage our local businesses, to provide employment and growth, thereby maintaining a healthy economy for the town. He is enthusiastic about working with and supporting all our local organisations and societies to provide a safe, secure and enjoyable environment for all our residents, and he is an avid supporter of the successful ‘Amersham in Bloom’ with all its volunteers and sponsors.
He is determined to ensure the Town Council continues to deliver “value for money”, and high quality service to its residents. He is also committed to being available to listen to the concerns of residents, organisations, societies, and businesses, which affect Amersham, and the ways in which the Town Council can respond within its remit.
The role of Town Mayor is acknowledged as one of great importance and responsibility and as well as attending various functions on behalf of Amersham Town Council, Councillor Morgan also has a role on a number of council and community committees. He is also a vital figure in maintaining and improving the wonderful relationship we have with our twin-town of Bensheim in Germany.
Mayor’s Chosen Charity for 2017-2018: Buckinghamshire Mind
Councillor Morgan is delighted to announce that he has chosen to support Buckinghamshire Mind through his term of office. After meeting with Fundraising & Communications Officer, Kaya Mallinder, to understand more about the work of the charity in Amersham and the surrounding area, Councillor Morgan is keen to throw his support behind the work of this fantastic charity!
He said: “Modern living and lifestyles are today having an impact on almost everyone. Pace, pressure, noise, financial concerns, uncertainty and the daily news feed all of which add to the impact upon men, women and children of all ages. Not only can these factors result in physical illness, but increasingly, the effects are manifesting themselves in mental capacities; not only in our community but nationally.
My thoughts are currently focused towards the needs of the Amersham community, and I am grateful for the work that Buckinghamshire Mind are undertaking regarding Mental Health. As this is my designated charity for my Mayoral year, I would welcome your generous support with this charity, with the aim of making a significant difference to those with mental health needs within our Community.”
