The Mayor

The Mayor of Thame

Cllr Paul Cowell (pictured, left), was elected by the Town Council at the Annual Meeting on Tuesday 18 May 2021 as Mayor of Thame for 2021-2022. The Deputy Mayor was elected as Cllr Nigel Champken-Woods.

The position of Town Mayor is ceremonial and non-political and confers no additional advantage on the post-holder, other than the honour of representing Thame. The Mayor will attend civic and ceremonial functions within the District and the wider community during their Mayoral year of office. The Town Mayor will also act as Chairman to Full Council meetings and the Annual Town Meeting.
