New Mayor Elected to serve Royal Leamington Spa

Royal Leamington Spa’s new Mayor is Cllr Heather Calver.  She was elected to the post and took the mayoral chain at a ceremony at the Town Council's annual meeting on Saturday 12th May. 

The new Mayor describes Leamington, the town she will represent for 12 months, as a “wonderful Royal Town with its beautiful Regency architecture and elegant parks”.

Heather, a Country Market producer, says she is “privileged” to be chosen to serve the Town she has lived in for more than 34 years. She said “I am proud to live in such a diverse community steeped in heritage and I hope to meet with many community groups and volunteers during my mayoral term of office to showcase their valuable work.”

Cllr Calver has a special interest in the charities she has chosen to support.  Firstly the Head and Neck Cancer Foundation that raises money for research into what she describes as a Cinderella type of cancer, not as well-known as say breast or bowel cancer but one that can profoundly affect sufferers”.

Her other chosen charity, close to her heart, is the Mencap Valley Road Respite Centre, which is in Lillington. It provides short breaks for adults with Learning Disabilities giving their parents or carers time to recharge batteries to enable them to continue their supporting role, and provides the service users themselves with new, valuable, experiences.
