  • Neston is set have its first Junior Mayor installed next week.

    Neston Town Council have initiated the scheme in partnership with the town’s four primary schools. There will also be two Deputy Junior Mayors.

    Outgoing Town Mayor Cllr Mike Shipman said, “As well as providing an additional link between the Town Council and the town’s primary schools, staff and pupils, the initiative will involve young people in the civic life of the town, and provide additional opportunities to deliver aspects of the National Curriculum, in particular preparing to play an active role as citizens.”

    The identity of the first Junior Mayor will be announced before the start of the Annual Meeting of the Council on Tuesday 16th May. But we can be revealed that she is a pupil at Neston Primary School. She and her two deputies, one from Parkgate Primary and one from St Winefride’s Primary, will be invested at 6:00 pm at a brief ceremony at the Town Hall.

    Rob Golding, Headteacher at Neston Primary said, “The four local Primary Schools are delighted to be involved in this new initiative and we would like to thank Neston Town Council for inviting us to take part. We all hope that the role will develop further over the coming years so that some of the younger members of the community can take an active role. You never know we may even discover a future Town Mayor!”

    During their year of office the Mayor and deputies will be representing their peer group on appropriate civic and other occasions, such as the Village Fair, Remembrance Day and Town Christmas celebrations as well as Inter-school events.

    They will also be responsible for drawing to the attention of the Town Council matters of particular concern to their own school councils.

    Schools have worked out a rota to ensure all schools provide the Junior Mayor over a four-year cycle.

  • At the Annual Meeting of the Council on 16th May Cllr Pat Kynaston, although absent due to business, was elected as Chairman of Neston Town Council.

    Cllr Kynaston later said ‘To be elected by your fellow councillors to be Chairman is a privilege and I was delighted to accept the position. While maintaining my commitment to Council business as Chairman, I will also be representing Neston Town Council at local and area functions. I am looking forward to fulfilling these duties to the best of my ability.’

    The title of Mayor can be chosen by the Council’s Chairman in accordance with Local Government Act 1972 s245 (6). Councillor Kynaston was happy to take the title.

    Cllr Kynaston has lived in the Neston area all her life, having been born in Parkgate, and moved to Little Neston when she married her husband, Robert.

    She previously worked in the TSB Bank when it was still a saving bank, and after 20 years she left to set up her own company offering small conference planning, building up to offering group leisure tours for organisations and social groups in the Cheshire area.

    Cllr Kynaston has now decided to retire so that she can have more time for her interests, such as the WEA (Workers Educational Association).

    At the meeting Cllr Dave Carter was elected as Deputy Mayor and said ‘I am delighted to serve as Deputy Town Mayor for Neston and look forward to working with the Mayor, the Councillors and the Council.’

  • Do you recognise this old photograph in Neston?

    If you are passing Neston Town Hall in the next week or so, call in and have a look at the Town Council’s display in the entrance hall, an overview of 150 years of local government since July 1867 when the Local Government Act was adopted and Neston could charge a rate and start work on providing decent drains and a supply of clean water.

    Local historian and Neston Town Councillor, Susan Chambers, who created the display said “This is just a brief glimpse of some of the achievements of Neston’s councils and some of the people involved over the years”.

    The Council’s new exhibition stands will provide a good opportunity to show various aspects of Neston’s life and long history, in a series of displays over the next few months.
