With Colchester’s civic events on hold due to Covid-19, the annual Mayor Making ceremony was due to have been held at Moot Hall last week (27 May 2020).
The revised Mayor Making schedule means Councillor Nick Cope will remain as Mayor for the 2020-2021 Municipal Year and will look to hand over the Mayoralty to Cllr Davidson during the Full Council meeting on 21 October 2020, prior to the next scheduled Annual Meeting on 26 May 2021. With Councillor Cope happy to endorse the extension of his Mayoralty by six months, Councillor Davidson’s Mayoralty will now commence from the 21 October 2020 meeting and end at the May 2022 Annual Meeting.
