I was pleased an again honoured to be ask to take the Mayor of Cheltenham Official Portrait, this years Mayor is Councillor Simon Wheeler I would like to wish Councillor Wheeler a great and successful Mayoral year.


Councillor Simon Wheeler, said: “I am very much looking forward to the honour of representing Cheltenham, the town I have come to love since moving here in 1968. It will be an honour to be in a position to promote two charities that run wonderful projects for young people and for people with disabilities. “My chosen charities carry out valuable work in the community that benefit every one of us directly or indirectly. I am looking forward to working with both of these fantastic charities over the next year. Already in the planning phase are a number of fundraising events, including the launch on Saturday 7 June at the Butterfly Garden and a Charity Race Day on Friday 12 December. I will also be doing the Cheltenham Challenge, a sponsored walk from Cheltenham Race Course. I’m hoping that lots of people will sponsor me so I can raise vital funds for the two charities. I am also planning to organise a number of exciting evening events over the forthcoming year.”
