The Mayor's Cadet is Air Cadet Jack Muir-Howie from the 858 Rushden Squadron Air Cadets.

A Message from the Mayor:

It is a great honour and I feel incredibly privileged to have been elected to the position of Mayor of Rushden for 2018 / 2019. I hope I can represent the Town well, achieving the high standards of my predecessors.

Rushden has such a lot to offer and I shall endeavour to support as many organisations and events as possible during my Mayoral year.

In my capacity as Deputy I was pleased to support Cllr Barbara Jenney, attending Civic events at towns across the region, when required. My travels included Civic duties at Stamford, Whittlesey and Milton Keynes to name but a few. I look forward to visiting new destinations, as I continue to promote Rushden and its many attractions. The diary is filled with invitations from far and wide and I am pleased at the prospect of making new friends, both locally and from further afield, as I look to further promote the merits of Rushden.

I am proud that my wife, Cllr Melanie Coleman, will accompany me as my Consort.

Rushden certainly has a lot to offer. We have many hidden gems across the Town, which we should be justifiably proud of. A walk through our "Green Flag" winning Hall Park is a delight at any time and we should not overlook other attractions, including Rushden Museum and Rushden Station, both of which benefit from the unsung efforts from the many volunteers who work tirelessly in the background.

There are so many groups and organisations across the Town who do excellent work, either by nurturing our youth, supporting charities or offering opportunities for people to meet and socialise. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible, during my year, with highlights including Celebrate Rushden, Party in the Park and the Christmas Lights Switch-on.

I will be hosting a number of Mayoral events during my year, looking to raise funds for a number of local good causes, and it would be great to receive your support.

The main charities I have selected for my Mayoral year are;

  • Rushden MIND,
  • The Royal British Legion (Rushden Branch) and
  • 858 (Rushden) Squadron Air Cadets

I hope you will agree are all worthwhile causes.

Cllr David Coleman
Mayor of Rushden
