Inviting the Mayor to Your Event

If you wish to invite the Mayor of Beverley to attend your event or you are seeking her support, please send a written invitation to the Beverley Town Council office by completing the attached form and sending it by post (12 Well Lane, Beverley, HU17 9BL) or email (clerk@beverley.gov.uk).  However, please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic, many civic and public events are currently suspended.

All invitations received will be discussed with the Mayor and a decision made depending upon the civic diary. If the Mayor is available to attend your event an acceptance letter or email will be sent to you. In the event that the Mayor is unable to attend, the invitation will be passed on to the Deputy Mayor for consideration, and the appropriate response sent.

In order that we may maintain a complete record of events in the civic diary, please do not contact the Mayor directly or send correspondence to their home. All communication must be done through the Beverley Town Council office.

When inviting the Mayor, please give some thought to what you wish to achieve by having the Mayor at your function and what you would like the Mayor to do. This may include giving a presentation, receiving a cheque, reading a lesson, making a speech or drawing a raffle.  It would be useful if you could provide some background information about your organisation and the event. This is especially important if you wish the Mayor to make a speech.  Please make someone available to greet the Mayor on arrival, and accompany them on their visit.

Please also bear in mind that the Mayor often has several civic engagements throughout the day and will need to leave your event on time in order to maintain their schedule.
