The Current Mayor

Councillor Simon White

Mayor 2019/20

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2019/20 Mayoral Year has continued to run on and will do so until such time that an Annual Council is held.   Therefore, Councillor Simon White will remain in Office until then.

Councillor Simon White , the current Mayor

My name is Simon White. I am 50 years of age and live in Madeley at the Old Hall, which I run as my Bed and Breakfast business. 

Although I was born and bred in Lancashire, I have lived in the borough for 10 years now and have made Madeley my home. I live there with my husband Gary who is also a Borough Councillor and serving as my consort.

I have worked in the community for the majority of my time in the borough, first of all serving as a parish councillor - which I still am - and becoming a Borough Councillor around five years ago.

I have also been a Governor at Madeley High School and am currently an active member of the Alms houses charity.

I am a keen advocate of working closely with our community and for making the most of the important historical heritage of the borough.

This is my second Term of Office, my first being in 2017/18, and I will do my utmost during this year in office to bring Newcastle back to the forefront in ensuring our heritage and our facilities are well known about.

In my personal time I enjoy keeping fit and cycling around our beautiful countryside.

My  chosen charity for my year in office is the The Academy for Theatre Arts Ltd (Reg Charity Number 1124469) and I would appreciate everyone's support in maximising the fundraising efforts for this very worthy cause.

Mayor's Spring Ball 2020

It is with regret that the Mayor’s Ball, scheduled for 25 April, has been postponed in light of Government advice in response to the CV-19 Pandemic. We have provisionally rescheduled for 24 October, although this will need to be confirmed nearer to the time. The Mayor thanks everyone for their understanding and support, and looks forward to welcoming you, all being well, to a celebratory Ball in October
