Hilary Bushell, who has served as Dereham’s mayor for the past 12 months, was re-elected during the Annual Meeting of Dereham Town Council, which was held on Tuesday 15th May 2018.
The decision makes her the first person to serve two years in office since the council transformed from an urban district council to a town council.
If you would like the Mayor to attend an event please contact Dereham Town Council on: 01362 693821 or send an invitation to: Dereham Town Council, Assembly Rooms, Quebec Street, Dereham, Norfolk NR19 2TX
Councillor Ann Bowyer was appointed Deputy Mayor.
On 12 May 2015, Dereham Town Council formally resolved to work with those responsible to ensure that all public rights of ways are kept in good order at all times. It has appointed a Footpath Warden to assist in this, and receives regular reports from him to its Heritage and Open Spaces Committee: contact him at email@example.com.
In line with its wish for people to have the opportunity to get out and enjoy the countryside in and around Dereham, the Town Council supported the town to secure Walkers and Welcome status in 2016. This year, the Walkers are Welcome group has revised the original pack of walks guides which the Town Council produced, and the Council has provided funding towards their publication. All of the walks – and more information – can be found on the Dereham Walkers are Welcome website (see the “Useful Links” section on your right). Printed copies are available from the Council offices and the Library.
This event is organised by the Dereham Carnival Group. Please go to www.derehamchristmas.co.uk for further details.
