For the Municipal Year 2019 – 2020

In 2007, Hereford City Council inaugurated the appointment of a Junior Mayor of Hereford with two objectives: to increase public awareness of the role of the Mayoralty and City Council, and to help educate young people about local government by increasing links between the Mayor of the day and the City’s schools.

In September, the Mayor’s Secretary sends out nomination forms to Primary Schools within the City and surrounding areas and nominations are then considered in October by a panel including the current Mayor, the Deputy Mayor and the Town Clerk. The Junior Mayor’s whole class and some teachers are invited to attend and learn about the process. The date for the Junior Mayor Making Ceremony is provisionally set for November, subject to consultation with the school involved.
