Your Borough Of Poole

The Mayor

Cllr Lindsay Wilson

Councillor Lindsay Wilson will serve as Poole's 769th Mayor during 2017-18 following election at the annual Mayor Making Ceremony.

Councillor Wilson's duties as Mayor include chairing all meetings of the Full Council, overseeing all citizenship ceremonies for people becoming British citizens in Poole and representing residents as their ambassador at the many functions she will attend in her mayoral year.

Inviting the Mayor to an event

The Mayor welcomes invitations to attend events held by the local community within Borough of Poole. These can range from school visits and coffee mornings to formal dinners and ceremonies. The Mayor is also happy to join you celebrating special anniversaries and 100th birthdays.

If you would like to invite the Mayor to your event, please complete a request for a visit from the mayor. It would be very helpful to have as much information as possible about the event you are planning to hold.

We normally need at least four weeks’ notice for all invitations. It’s best to give more notice than this if you can as the Mayor's diary gets booked up weeks in advance.

Due to demand it may not be possible for the Civic Party to attend every event. A member of staff from the Mayor’s Office will contact you if any members of the Civic Party are available to attend your event. 

Mayor's Charities

Each Mayor selects their own charities and promotes various fundraising events during their term of office.

Mayor Councillor Lindsay Wilson has chosen the following three charities for 2017/18

  • Forest Holme Hospice - part of Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Forest Holme provides palliative and end of life care to over 1,000 local people each year
  • Restored - a local charity which seeks to support, empower and restore lives to overcome the effects of eating disorders
  • C.R.A.S.H Hedgehog Hospital - using public donations to treat sick and injured hedgehogs in Dorset
