Adam Peacock is Town Mayor 2022-23

16 May 2022

New Town Mayor Cllr Adam Peacock and his Deputy Cllr Frazer Visser were invested at the Annual Town Council on Monday 9 May. Cllr Peacock’s charities in his Mayoral year are East Grinstead Lions Club and Being Neighbourly EG.  The new mayor saying that there were many worthy local causes and he wanted to support two that were directly supporting families and individuals during this difficult economic time.

The Mayormaking (Annual Council Meeting) was the first to be held in person for two years following the disruption from Covid during 2020 and 2021.  Outgoing Mayor Cllr John Dabell had been invested at the end of September 2020 following his predecessor completing an elongated stint of 15 months, and was re-elected in May 2021 with the hope that the year would be more normal,  sadly more lockdowns and restrictions meant that 2021/22 also had its challenges.

Cllr Dabell had however, hosted a quiz, murder mystery and hoedown and raised £3,105 for each of his two charities. Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) and St Catherine’s Hospice.
