Wellington Town Council
Hello and welcome to the Wellington Town Council website. I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to Cllr. Pat Fairclough, outgoing Mayor of Wellington. She adapted to the many challenges that 2020/21 brought and shone in her role. I can only hope to carry out my duties as well as she did.
The role of Mayor is often considered traditional and largely ceremonial, however, I aim to be proactive, hands-on and seek to do all I can to promote and celebrate the very best of Wellington.
That means, supporting businesses, traders and our beloved Market. It means highlighting the great work community groups and charities in the area continue to do. Moreover, it means that I want to engage residents, right across Wellington to ensure that as a Town Council we continue to communicate well and support each other.
So whilst none of us can be sure of what the next 12 months will bring, I truly hope that we can continue to mindful about keeping safe and as social distancing rules begin to relax, wouldn’t it be great to be able to come together and celebrate all things Wellington. Our Town’s motto is more apt than ever, “Deo Adjuvante” – With God’s Help.
Finally, as a local lad, raised around the “Gas Works”, I have never felt the need to stray far, because I’m proud of Wellington, proud to be a Wellingtonian and proud to be your Mayor.
Paul Davis, Mayor of Wellington
