Mayor of Amersham

2016-2017 – Cllr. Mark Vivis

The current Mayor of Amersham is Councillor Mark Vivis. Councillor Vivis was first elected to serve as an Amersham Town Councillor in 2011 and was honoured to be elected to the role of Town Mayor in May 2016, having served as Deputy Mayor during the previous year.

Councillor Vivis is passionate about putting the community first and works to ensure that Amersham residents get value for money whilst protecting the high standard of service which is delivered by the Town Council. Councillor Vivis has pledged to sustain Amersham as a thriving community as well as being a diverse, vibrant and pleasant place to live, work and relax. The Town Council events season is always an exciting time and is a great opportunity for the Mayor to meet both residents of Amersham and visitors alike.

The role of Town Mayor is a huge honour. As well as attending various functions on behalf of Amersham Town Council, Councillor Vivis also chairs a variety of council committee meetings and ensures that together with the support of fellow Councillors and the ATC team, Amersham residents receive good value for money. The Town Mayor is also a vital figure in maintaining the strong relationship we have with our wonderful twin town of Bensheim in Germany.

Mayor’s Charity:

Each year, the Town Mayor has the opportunity to support a local charity which benefits the lives of the local community. After attending their opening reception and seeing the vital work which they carry out, Councillor Vivis is delighted to have chosen to support the Roald Dahl Marvellous Children’s Charity for his year in office.

Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity provides specialist children’s nurses and family support for seriously ill children across the UK with a mission to ensure that every seriously ill child has the best possible healthcare. The charity believes every child has the right to a more marvellous life, no matter how ill they are, or how short their life may be and it works to create and fund specialist nursing posts within the NHS across the UK with 52 nurses caring for over 10,000 children at any one time with serious, rare, undiagnosed or overlooked conditions. In addition to the specialist Roald Dahl nurses, the charity also offer grants to families in financial crisis struggling with the cost of looking after their seriously ill or disabled child.
