COMMONWEALTH DAY

On Monday 13th March 2017, the Mayor of Louth, Councillor Mrs. Eileen Ballard JP, her Chaplain, Serjeant and other members of the Council met to raise the Commonwealth Flag outside The Sessions House in a short ceremony at which the Mayor read out the Queen's Commonwealth Day message and the Commonwealth Affirmation.  Those gathered then moved inside to witness the Single Commemorative Act which offered a unique opportunity for Louth to join with the national civic family in an event which every Civic Head in the United Kingdom had been invited to take part in concurrently and which was the third of its kind on the run up to the anniversary of the end of World War I.  Sir Edward Grey, Foreign Secretary, uttered these words on the eve of Britain officially entering the First World War "The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime".  This Single Act invited us to join together in a moment of reflection.  A third candle was lit and a light will remain alight for the next twelve months as a reminder to all who see it not only of the sacrifices made during the past 100 years through conflicts in which this country has been involved but also as a symbol of hope that we will work towards understanding between peoples.

ELECTION OF MAYOR 2016/17

On Tuesday 17th May 2016 Louth Town Council elected Councillor Mrs. Eileen Ballard JP to be its Mayor for the 2016/17 year. 

Eileen has served on the Town Council since June 1991 and has been Mayor on two previous occasions in 1997 and 2005.  She came to Louth when she was 24 and has lived here ever since.  She was heavily involved in obtaining the provision of the Conoco Rooms above Louth Library as an asset for the town and still serves on the committee today.  She was also instrumental in obtaining CCTV provision for the town and is still the Town Council's representative on the CCTV Panel.  She is the President of the Louth Athletics Club, a Magistrate and is also on the Board of the Louth Arthritis Care group and Louth Sports Association.

Eileen can be contacted at 19 Albany Road, Louth, LN11 8ET
or on 01507 604975.

The Mayor of Louth is only too happy to attend local events and those further afield whether they be coffee mornings or official opening ceremonies, if the organisers feel that the presence of the Mayor could raise the profile of their event.  The Mayor of Louth is the first citizen of Louth and part of their role is to promote Louth. 

If you would like the Mayor of Louth to attend an event please write to:

Mrs. Lynda Phillips
