Mayor and Twinning Details
In May of each year an Annual Town Council meeting is held where the Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected. Both roles represent the people and council of Weymouth and these roles are non-political. The Mayor chairs the Full Council meetings and leads the town’s civic events such as Remembrance Sunday.
In the Mayor’s absence the Deputy Mayor will stand in place.
In May 2022, Cllr Ann Weaving was elected as the Mayor of Weymouth, and Cllr Tia Roos was elected as the Deputy Mayor.
Cllr Weaving will continue to be Mayor until May 2023, when the next Mayor will be elected.
I was born in Chislehurst in Kent, and attended Bromley College where I studied shorthand, typing, accountancy and bookkeeping.
I went on to become the Marketing Manager for the London Electricity Board as it was known back then. The company was later privatised and I retrained to become an Internal Auditor there, which was quite a career change!
I have been active in politics since I was 16. I went on to be elected as a councillor in Outer London, North West Kent and later served on the Greater London Council for five years.
But I decided to move from Woolwich to Weymouth after booking a caravan stay in Preston, Weymouth about 27 years ago. When I got off the train in Weymouth a feeling came over me and I knew this would become my home.
Everyone I met smiled and said good morning, so I just had to move here. My favourite thing about living in Weymouth is the people. It’s not a town, it’s a community.
Although I’m retired now, I have ten grand-children and eight great grand-children who keep me busy, but I’m also involved in the Youth Club at Littlemoor, and the group Big 4 Littlemoor. And when time allows I also help out at a foodbank. I am also a member of UNISON.
I’ve been a member of the town council’s Planning and Licensing Committee and I’m looking forward to chairing meetings of Full Council, which is a requirement of the Mayor’s role.
It will be a busy year ahead, and I am really interested to meet lots more people who live, work and visit Weymouth, as well as attending a diverse range of community and civic events.
Councillor Ann Weaving.

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.
