New Mayor, new message

New Mayor for Bridgnorth

Cllr David Cooper was inaugurated as Bridgnorth’s new Mayor in May, and we asked him about what he wants to achieve for Bridgnorth:

“I love the character of Bridgnorth! Having lived and worked in other parts of the country really helps me appreciate how special it is. I’ve been settled in here for 13 years, and have been active in community affairs for around a decade. I put myself forward for election to the Town Council two years ago, and I’m honoured to be chosen to be Mayor.

“I have many things I’d like to achieve, but a key one is to get more people involved in doing things for Bridgnorth. So, if you’re the kind of person who thinks ‘wouldn’t it be nice if someone did…?’ – why not think about becoming the ‘someone’?

“The Mayor has many responsibilities over and above dealing with council matters. Through my official engagements I’m particularly looking to offer support and encouragement to those who give their time to help others in voluntary groups. I’ll be raising funds directly for charity too – the Samaritans, Medecins sans Frontieres, and local good causes.”
