The Mayor of Oadby and Wigston, Councillor Rosemarie Adams

The Mayor of Oadby and Wigston Borough Council is a role of tradition given to a Councillor for a fixed term.

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 Rosemarie Adams, was elected on 10 May 2022.

The role is ceremonial, does not carry any decision-making duties, and is non-political and non-partisan.

Councillor Adams has been a resident of the borough for over 40 years and feels passionate about doing all she can to really put Oadby and Wigston on the map as a fantastic place to live, work and visit.

Each Mayor chooses a charity to support, and Councillor Adams has chosen Voluntary Action South Leicestershire who as a local charity provide invaluable support and services to many residents of the borough. As a carer she benefited from their incredible work first-hand, and throughout her term will work hard to ensure they are able to offer the same to as many people as possible

Councillor Adams has spoken of the privilege she feels to be representing the Borough in Leicester and Leicestershire, and is enjoying meeting both residents and businesses and building on the community spirit which really came to the forefront during the pandemic.
