The Current Mayor

Councillor John Cooper

Mayor 2020/21The mayor, Councillor John Cooper


My name is John Cooper, I am 75 years of age and live in the Wolstanton area.  I am one of the Councillors for the May Bank Ward and I am County Councillor for the Bradwell, Porthill and Wolstanton Division.

I live in Wolstanton with my wife Angela who is serving as my Mayoress.  My grandsons Isaac and Sean are my High Constables.


I have worked in the community for many years, becoming a Borough Councillor 18 years ago.  I was an engineer by trade.  I am also the Chair of Bradwell Lodge.


I am a keen advocate of working closely with our community and for making the most of the important historical heritage of the borough, I will do my utmost during my time in office to bring Newcastle back to the forefront in ensuring our heritage and our facilities are promoted.


I was Mayor of the Borough in 2008/09 and it certainly feels a bit different this time around but I am up for the challenge and, during these strange times I will do my best, especially in finding new ways to raise as much money as possible for charity.


My chosen charity is the Alice Charity which supports disadvantaged and vulnerable families in Newcastle and, with a shorter Mayoral term than usual due to the Coronavirus, I would appreciate everyone's support in maximising the fundraising efforts for this very worthy cause.


It is an absolute honour and privilege to represent this loyal and ancient borough for a second time and I feel extremely proud.
