The Mayor announced that sadly Rev Michael Banks, a former Director of Leisure Services and Chief Executive of the Council had passed away earlier this month.  The Mayor was sure that all Members that knew him would wish to join her in sending condolences to his family.


At the Mayor’s request, the Portfolio Holder for Communities, Community Safety and Equalities was delighted to inform the Council that the Stevenage Against Domestic Abuse (SADA) Forum were announced National Winners from Community Action at the Tenant  Participation Advisory Awards held on 12 July 2018.  The Mayor presented the Award to Team Members Sarah Pateman and Tania Stokes.


The Mayor informed the meeting that since the last meeting, the Mayoral Team had attended 48 engagements, and she referred to a number of highlights, including the Town Twinning visit to Autun, Stevenage Day, the Cycle Race and a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.


The Mayor reminded Members that she would be holding her first Charities fund raising event, a Garden Party in the Stevenage Scout Hut Garden in The Poplars on Sunday, 2 September 2018.  She hoped as many Members as possible would be able to attend.


The Mayor wished to highlight the work of her three chosen Charities.  The Council received presentations from Michelle Stokes (Carers in Hertfordshire), Mervyn Terrett (TRACKS Autism) and Amber Hunter and Dean Vaughan (Stevenage Scouts).
