About Councillor Liz Jones
I am honoured to be asked to remain in the role of Town Mayor for a further term of office, for the municipal year 2023/24.
Having been Mayor twice previously (2015/16, 2022/23) I am aware of the commitment this role brings and I am committed to ensuring I represent Dunstable to the highest of standards.
I have been a Town Councillor since 2009 and thoroughly enjoy giving back my time to the town I grew up in and have lived all my life.
I would like to focus my year as Mayor around community cohesion and working to identify greater partnership opportunities to do even more for our town together.
I look forward to seeing everyone enjoying the Summer Events programme the Town Council has lined up.
Each year the Mayor chooses local charities to support by holding various fund raising activities. I have chosen two main charities to support this year all of whom provide much needed help to those most in need.
My charities are:
- South Beds Dial-a-Ride
Dial-a-Ride offers transport to residents who no longer drive or cannot easily use public transport to get too and from hospital appointments; medical appointments or trips out to meet with friends and relatives. In addition, they run some bus services, bringing people from local villages into Dunstable to use our shops and businesses on a regular basis.
CHUMS offers a range of services to young people and their families across Bedfordshire that include mental health support, trauma, young carers, baby loss, suicide prevention, bereavement support, emotional wellbeing.
I will also support a number of other organisations during my year as I did previously.
I have a number of fundraising events planned for my year and I would very much like to welcome anyone who would like to come along and support them. My event dates will be listed on my mayoral page on the town council’s website.
I look forward to attending local events and activities during my year and meeting as many Dunstable residents as possible.
