Come to Chippy’s Mayormaking!

19:15, Upper Town Hall, Monday 20th May

Town Crest.png

A newly elected Chipping Norton Town Council – somewhat changed with 6 new members out of 16 – meets for the first time at 7:15pm in the main Town Hall on Monday 20th May. The public are welcome and it’s a chance to see some of the ‘robes and ritual’ of our historic past – when the Town proudly ran many of its own affairs, rather than defering to District and County.

This first monthly meeting of the Council’s year is special as it includes the traditional Mayormaking ceremony, to elect and ‘swear in’ a new Mayor. Then it will be down to business with the Town Council representing the town in times of change, running some of our important town services.

Why not come along – take your seat by 7:05pm please – and see democracy in action?

Calling candidate Zoey MacGregor – come in Zoey MacGregor!

When it’s election time we always have a feature for every candidate in the print copy of the News. But so far, for the local elections on Thursday 2nd May we only have information from 24 out of the 25 candidates – there’s one missing.

So if you know Zoey MacGregor, please ask her to get in touch with the Chippy News so that we can add her to the list.

Thank you in advance!

We’ll put a list of candidates up on the website soon too.
