The final email as Lord Mayor

Dear Babs


Well, here we are, after 13 months my term as Lord Mayor in the best city in the world has come to an end! It’s truly been an honour, a privilege and the best job ever.

Thank you for being part of that year and for adding to my many experiences.

My Town Hall colleagues have been wonderful, as have my fundraising team, my colleagues, sponsors, donors, volunteers, the media and LCVS. It’s this teamwork that has helped me attend over 1500 events, raised over £300,000 for charity and meet so many ordinary people doing remarkable things.

I’ve had a wonderful time being Liverpool’s so called “First Citizen” and Ambassador. As you know the role is impartial, non-political and civic - representing the City rather than the City Council. You could say I get to do all the nice things. The historic “Chain of Office”, otherwise known as the “bling” is a 140 year old slice of history that appears to have magical powers that gets you on every guest list and through most doors!

At 5pm today (Wednesday 11th June) I move on to my new and exciting role as Cabinet Lead for “Business, Enterprise and Investment” working with Mayor Anderson and his team. This does mean the ambassadorial work will continue and I’m really looking forward to working with many existing and new friends. Hopefully together we can all make a real difference in this amazing City of Liverpool.
