Wellington Town Council
Pictured: Town Mayor; Cllr Anthony Lowe
Hello,May I introduce myself as your new Mayor for 2019-2012? I am Cllr Anthony Lowe, recently retired after 45 years working in engineering sales (30 of which in Telford & Wrekin). I have lived in Wellington for the past 7 years and am a Ward Councillor for Shawbirch on Wellington Town Council.
My Mayoral theme will be similar to your outgoing Mayor Cindy Mason-Morris to whom I wish to pay tribute. Cindy brought complete dedication and energy to the Mayoral role and is a tough act to follow! I wish to promote our local businesses in all 7 Wards of the Wellington civil parish and to support our many voluntary groups and organisations. I will be pleased to hear from you if you need my support or just wish to have a chat via Wellington Town Council offices at the bottom end of the library within the leisure centre.My chosen charities will be:
Manin Place, based on New Street in Wellington who offer accommodation for people who are sleeping rough or are homeless within Telford & Wrekin
Telford Aftercare Team (TACT) at Strickland House in Wellington which is a centre of recovery from alcohol and drug dependency offering structured daily activities
Both these organisations have been set up to help the most vulnerable in our Town and in our part of Shropshire. There will be a donation link on the Wellington Town Council website to allow you to make donations over the coming 12 months and I will be organising fund-raising events. It is an honour to have been unanimously elected as your Mayor. I am here to lift the profile of our historic market town. If you feel that I can be of help to you or your organisation, please ask.
