Meet the new Mayor at the Weymouth Community Picnic!
Residents are invited to a free community picnic event on Sunday 15th May where they can meet the new Mayor of Weymouth. The event is at Lodmoor Country Park next to the children’s galleon play area from 1pm to 3.30pm.
This will be an opportunity for residents to meet the newly elected Mayor of Weymouth, who will be announced at our Full Council meeting on Wednesday 11th May. Town councillors and officers will also be there talking about various projects and services. They will be joined by the Friends of Lodmoor Country Park who will be showcasing their work in helping to protect, improve and promote the park.
There will also be a variety of free activities, music and entertainment at the event. Why not have a go at pebble painting, or get your face painted! And make the most of your surroundings by having a go at the Lodmoor Tree Trail to learn all about the trees growing in the country park.
As part of the event, the Mayor’s Community Awards will be presented to unsung heroes who have been nominated by their community in recognition of selfless work that they do for others.
Cllr Colin Huckle, Mayor of Weymouth, said: “Following on from the successful community picnic event held at Sandsfoot Gardens last year, we’re delighted to once again be holding the event this year – this time in Lodmoor Country Park.
“My time as Mayor is coming to an end, and at this event we’ll be introducing the community to our newly elected Mayor who will serve our town for the next 12 months. It’s been an enormous privilege to be the Mayor of Weymouth and I hope that the incoming Mayor enjoys the role as much as I have.
“I hope to see plenty of people at Lodmoor Country Park on Sunday 15th May enjoying this free event and the various activities on offer – I am especially looking forward to presenting the Mayor’s Community Awards and recognising the people in our town who go the extra mile for the good of their community.”
Where possible, walking or cycling to this event is encouraged.
