Cllr Peter Scollard ,became the new Mayor of Gravesham for the municipal year at the annual meeting of Gravesham Borough Council on 17 May 2022. His wife, Julie Easy is The Mayoress.
Message from Cllr Scollard
“In 2015 I became a councillor for Northfleet North ward where No Walls is based, and have gained a much greater understanding of the issues affecting the whole Borough.
“Covid-19 and now the current energy crisis have hit many people hard and the pressures of day-to-day life are increasing.
“As your Mayor and with the support of my Mayoress, I would like to continue the great work Cllr Lyn Milner has done this past year and support local groups and organisations in encouraging people to get outside, enjoy their community and come together to celebrate its achievements.
“I hope to raise awareness of those organisations that work with the most vulnerable and promote well-being for our residents.”
To that end, the Mayor’s charities for the year are Ellenor, Age UK North West Kent, and Home-Start.
Cllr Scollard concluded: “It is an immense honour to be here tonight as your Mayor, and a long way from the Romford market boy considered too small to work in a kitchen.
“I hope I do you proud.”
Cllr John Caller was appointed as Deputy Mayor. The Deputy Mayoress is Sue Caller.
