The Mayor of Oadby and Wigston, Councillor Lynda Eaton.
The Mayor of Oadby and Wigston Borough Council is a role of tradition given to a Councillor for one year.
The Mayor is the First Citizen of the district and represents the council at civic functions and events within Oadby, Wigston & South Wigston and beyond.
The current Mayor, Councillor Lynda Eaton JP, was elected on 14 May and her term of civic office will run until 12 May 2020.
The role is customary, does not carry any decision making duties, and is non-political and non-partisan.
Councillor Lynda Eaton has lived in Wigston for 34 years and has been a councillor since May 2007 and she was previously Mayor in 2012/2013. Lynda has been married to Rob for 48 years, who is also a borough councillor; they have a daughter, a son and two grandsons and two granddaughters. Lynda has been a Magistrate for 30 years sitting in Leicester and the County.
Lynda and Rob are Trustees for the Leicester Children’s Holiday charity and that is why Lynda has chosen them as the charity for her Mayoral Year. The charity aims to give children a free holiday who, for numerous reasons, would otherwise not get one, they believe that every child needs a holiday and their holidays are packed with may activities for the children to take part in - Zip Wires, Obstacle Courses and Wall Climbing to name a few, all activities are supervised by trained staff at the centre near Cromer and all the money raised goes directly to sending children on holiday.
Lynda is looking forward to her year in office, representing the Borough in Leicester and Leicestershire, something she finds easy to do and is very much looking forward to meeting both residents and business throughout the year. Lynda believes our borough is a great place to live and work.
