Wadebridge Town Council is delighted to announce that, at the Annual Council meeting held on Wednesday 19 May 2021, Members unanimously voted Cllr Amanda Pennington be appointed Wadebridge Mayor for 2021/2022.

Amanda Pennington


Amanda joined Wadebridge Town Council in September 2011 after the town called an election to fill 2 vacancies and has been involved in many council projects, including sitting on various working groups, and as Chairman of the Planning Committee.  Amanda works hard for the parishioners of Wadebridge and is always ready to listen to their comments and suggestions.  Amanda is well respected by her fellow councillors and staff alike and we wish her well as Wadebridge Town Council’s  Mayor for the year ahead.


Ian Welch

Members also voted unanimously to appoint Cllr Ian Welch as Deputy Mayor for 2021/2022.  Ian joined the town council as a co-opted member in October 2018 and from the very start has gained the trust and respect from his fellow councillors.  Ian has assisted Amanda on the Planning Committee as Deputy Chair where he ensures all aspects of planning applications are considered and is keen to encourage and listen to comments from members of the public.  Ian is also on many working groups including the Climate Change Emergency group.

We wish both Amanda and Ian good luck in their roles as Mayor and Deputy Mayor over the coming year.
