A Message from the Mayor of Rushden
I am immensely privilege to be elected Town Mayor of Rushden for a second time, particularly as my year of office comes at an exciting time in Rushden's development.
History has shown that Rushden and its residents can adapt to change and flourish, and it is with great anticipation that we once again look to the future.
Rushden Lakes will provide a new modern dimension to the heritage of the town and focus attention, not only on Rushden, but on the whole of North Northamptonshire. We have an opportunity to show visitors to Rushden Lakes that we have a town and a community of which we can be proud.
I am sure this year will be very different to that of eight years ago. I have no doubt it will be an active and hugely enjoyable one. I look forward to getting out and about in the town as well as representing Rushden further afield.
I am proud to announce that my husband, Cllr David Jenney, will accompany me as my Consort.
I very much look forward to meeting as many of you as possible and would welcome any opportunity to lend my support to groups and organisations within the town. Please contact the Mayor's Secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 01933 316216 to add a date into my diary.
I will be holding events throughout the year to help raise funds for local good causes. My main charities will be Rushden Branch Royal British Legion, TS Diamond Rushden Sea Cadets and Medical Detection Dogs, a charity that trains dogs in the early detection of major illness and to help people with life-threatening health conditions. You are very welcome to come along to my events and help me raise much-needed funds for these and other local good causes.
