Message from The Mayor of Usk
It is a great honour to be elected by fellow councillors to serve as Mayor of Usk again, and a real privilege to be working with such dedicated members, all of whom share one very special quality, their love of this town and their total commitment to making it the best it can be.
I came to Usk in 1966 and immediately fell in love with the town and its people. Usk is not only a very beautiful town set in the centre of a beautiful county, but it is a very real community and one which I am proud to serve.
We have a busy year ahead with the Summer Busking Festival, the Velothon, Open Gardens and of course the Usk in Bloom competition which this year sees our entry into the World in Bloom event. We are also planning this year’s Christmas activities and the Reindeer Parade.
I want to pay tribute to all the hard-working volunteers who make these events such a success. Thanks also to all the other volunteers involved in sporting clubs, litter picking, environmental groups and others. They do such wonderful work which makes Usk such a very special place in which to live. These events and activities also bring people into the town which helps the local economy.
I look forward to working with all local businesses and voluntary organisations in the coming year.
