Message from the Mayor
It is a great honour to be elected Mayor of Usk 2017/18 and I would like to thank my fellow councillors for their support in my election to this position. Usk is such a special town and I promise to represent and promote Usk to the best of my ability.
I was born in Llanfrechfra, grew up in the Wye Valley , went to school in Monmouth, joined the Prison Service and came to Usk almost thirty years ago with my wife Pam, and two children Paul and Ceri. I very soon became involved in many activities in the Town mainly to do with the hobbies and sports that my children enjoyed . Speaking to my children now they both appreciate how lucky they were to grow up in such a special place, and both wanted to return to give their children the same opportunities. My son came back to Usk to live and there are now four generations of Roderick`s in Usk ranging from my five year old grandson to my ninety one year old mother.
I am now involved in The Royal British Legion, The Usk Environmental Group , and the Town Council. It is important that we all give something back to our wonderful community and I do this by participating in voluntary work around the town. It is important that we protect the great environment in which we live, and improve and enhance the facilities available in the town. I would like to pay tribute to the many volunteers who work so hard for the town . My charities are centred around the town, and are The Jane Hathaway Leukaemia Fund, Children's Sport in Usk, Usk Brass Band, and Usk in Bloom.
I look forward to a very interesting and rewarding year, and ask for your support in raising funds for these very deserving charities and organizations.
Councillor Glenn Roderick
