Kidderminster Town Council announces new Mayor

Councillor Juliet Smith, who has represented Blakebrook and Habberley South ward for the last 6 years (as a Charter Trustee for 1 year and member of Kidderminster Town Council for 5 years), was named Mayor of Kidderminster last night, taking over from outgoing Mayor, Councillor Sarah Rook.

As Mayor, Councillor Smith will represent the town at a wide range of functions across the region, including charity, community and formal events.

She will also chair council meetings and work throughout the year to raise money for her three charities. She has chosen to support Greatfield Small Animal Rescue, Kidderminster & District Youth Trust and Wyre Forest Talking Newspaper.

Councillor Smith said…

“I’m delighted to be serving as Mayor of Kidderminster for this municipal year. It has been a difficult 12 months for everyone with the pandemic and lockdowns but as restrictions begin to ease there is light at the end of the tunnel. I am looking forward to representing the Council and my hometown and organising fundraising activities for my chosen charities, which will include my annual Mayor’s Ball in 2022.”


Any organisations that would like advice on inviting the Mayor to attend an event should contact the Mayor’s Office by email on office@kidderminstertowncouncil.gov.uk in the first instance.

Councillor Kevin Gale was elected Deputy Mayor for the ensuing year.
