Serving the people of Stroud to create a thriving, sustainable community

Mayor in the Market

Cllr Stella Parkes Mayor of Stroud

Stroud's Mayor Stella Parkes is launching 'Mayor in the Market' so residents can come chat to her about town centre issues.

Cllr Parkes will be at the Shambles on Fridays (from 5 August) from 11.30am-12.30 and is keen to speak to people about their concerns.

The 'Meet the Mayor' sessions were first established by John Marjoram in the 1990s as a way for him to connect and collaborate with the community. Each Mayor at the council has kept up with the tradition in different guises, but it was unfortunately abandoned at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Cllr Parkes said "I am very pleased to be starting up this valuable event once again in Stroud. I am looking forward to meeting residents and members of the community to discuss the issues which matter most to them."
