Alyson, who is Chair of Glastonbury’s Fairtrade Town Steering Group, will also become Chair of the Town Council’s Finance and General Purposes Committee as part of her new role. Outside of her work as a Town Councillor, Alyson spends time volunteering for Glastonbury Abbey’s wildlife area and for rescued horses.
Speaking about being Deputy Mayor, Alyson said, “This year, as my focus, I would like to work with the wildlife organisations in our area to protect and develop wildlife sanctuaries, and also Glastonbury’s wildlife corridors – as mentioned in the Neighbourhood Plan.”
“Make a difference to your local community through volunteering” was the message when CSW You Can Do joined Glastonbury’s new, Green, Deputy Mayor Cllr. Alyson Black to celebrate the launch of Volunteers Week 2018 by hosting a Volunteer Fair at Glastonbury Town Hall, on Friday 1st June.
This was Alyson’s first official engagement as Deputy Mayor of Glastonbury, a role in which she will be formally inaugurated on Mayor’s Sunday later this month!
Glastonbury & Street Green Party is delighted to announce that Green Councillor Alyson Black was elected Deputy Mayor of Glastonbury with a unanimous vote at last night’s Town Council ‘Mayor Making’ meeting.
Alyson, who has served on Glastonbury Council for the St. Edmund’s Ward since 2011, becomes the town’s fourth Green Deputy Mayor in five years!
Although she is our new Deputy, Alyson is no stranger to Mayoral Engagements because she was the Deputy Mayor’s Escort to Glastonbury’s first Green Deputy Mayor – Cllr. Denise Michell – in 2014/2015.
Alyson’s formal Civic Inauguration will take place at St. John’s Church on Mayor’s Sunday, 10th June.
