The new Mayor of Poole has chosen to support three projects for his mayoral year:

  • Y M C A (Shore Ideas)

  • Hamworthy Scouts

  • Poole Young Carers

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

The Mayor of Poole, Cllr Adams, said: "I am delighted and privileged to have been elected by my fellow Councillors to be the 766th Mayor of Poole. I will, to the best of my ability, uphold the traditions and dignity of this great office. My wife and I look forward to meeting the many organisations and individuals who make Poole such a wonderful place."

Cllr Adams was first elected to the Council in 2003 and represents the Oakdale ward. He moved to Poole 31 years ago with his wife of 51 years, Brenda and would not want to live anywhere else. He and the Mayoress have two daughters and four grandchildren.

The newly-appointed Sheriff of Poole, Councillor Jo Clements will support the Mayor with his civic duties and responsibilities. She has served as a councillor for the Newtown ward since 2010.
