The Deputy Mayor of the town is Cllr Ann Weaving.

Mayor’s Biography

I was born and raised in the East End of London close to the Essex Boarder. Hence I am a life long West Ham and Essex County Cricket Club Fan.

My first job upon leaving Grammar School was for the National Assistance Board in Poplar where the Kray Brothers were active.

I met my first wife whilst working there and we set up home in a small village near Epping. Following spells of working in the Private Sector and a spell of Self Employment I became the Office Manager for The Corporation of London in its Management of Epping Forest a major Public Open Space of some 6,000 acres which increased to 8,000 acres.

I was active in local politics and was a Parish Councillor for over 20 years. I was elected to serve on the Epping Forest District Council for 18 years holding a number of Senior Positions.

I also served as Chair of a Primary School as well as Christian Secondary School. I was also a Non Executive Director of an NHS Primary Care Trust.

Unfortunately my wife died in 1999 following a five years battle with Breast Cancer. At that time our Daughter was 14 years old.

I was blessed to meet Marian and we married in 2003 upon her retirement having had a career in education.

After two years we started a new life as we moved to Weymouth and have been very happy to be part of this Community. In 2012 I returned to active politics being elected to Weymouth and Portland Borough Council and held a number of Senior Positions. With Local Government re-organisation I was pleased to join the newly created Weymouth Town Council. I served during the first 2 years as Deputy Mayor and am now proud to have been asked to become Mayor in May.

I am a Past Captain and current President of Weymouth Golf Club, Secretary of The Weymouth F.C. Supporters Association. Marian and I are life long Christians.

Marian, my Mayoress, and I look forward to meeting as  many Community Groups and Residents and to actively promote Weymouth as a thriving place to live, work and play.

Councillor Colin Huckle.

Holzwickede

A similar Twinning relationship (Partnerschaften) developed between
Weymouth and Holzwickede, Germany and its “Charter of Friendship
(Freundschaftscharta)” was signed on 26 April 1987 by Weymouth’s
Mayor D. Hall and Holzwickede’s Mayor H. Schurhoff in the German town
and the Weymouth – Holzwickede Society was formed.
