The Mayor is the civic head of the council, whose role is non-political. The Mayor carries out ceremonial duties and chairs meetings, but is not able to make decisions about council business.
Within the borough the Mayor is second in precedence only to royalty and the Queen's representative, the Lord Lieutenant.
The Mayor of Waverley from May 2020 to May 2021 is Councillor Penny Marriott.
Cllr Marriott has lived in the borough since 1975 and she has been a Waverley councillor since 2019. She worked in a number of schools in the borough, before going back to university after her children had left home. She then had a second career, developing computer modelling techniques for scientific research.
Mayor's chosen charity
The Mayor has decided to make ‘young people’ the theme for her year and has chosen to support three charities that work with young people in the borough – the Sea Cadets, 40 Degreez and Home-Start Waverley.
The Deputy Mayor is Councillor John Robini.
How to address the Mayor
The correct form of address is as follows:
- ' The Worshipful the Mayor of Waverley, Cllr .....'
- Salutation: 'Dear Mr Mayor' or in the case of a female Mayor, 'Dear Madam Mayor'
- A female Mayor should not be referred to as 'The Mayoress'. This title is given to a male Mayor's escort/consort and is not necessarily the Mayor's wife.
