Patchway Town Council: 

The Mayor

The Mayor: Welcome

The Mayor of Patchway

The current Mayor of Patchway is Cllr Dayley Lawrence and he will serve from May 2022 to May 2024.

Cllr Dayley Lawrence was elected to be the Mayor of Patchway at the Annual Meeting of Patchway Town Council held on Tuesday 10th May 2022. On 6 May 2023, it was unanimously agreed to elect Cllr Dayley Lawrence as Mayor of Patchway for a second term until May 2024.

Each May, Patchway Town Council elects a Chairman to serve for that ensuing Civic Year. As we are a Town Council, our Chairmen are called 'Mayor' and as such have a Civic role to play within our Town. 

Patchway Town Council's Mayor is available to come to your special event, opening of a facility or presentation evening. The Mayor is the Civic Head of Patchway Town Council and is very keen to support local groups and organisations. 

If you have any events coming up, big or small, our Mayor would love to hear from you. 

Please contact us using the invitation form below to book in your Mayoral visit.
