Ceremonial and civic head
Each year in May the Council elects a Councillor to be the borough's ceremonial and civic head.
The Mayor does not take an active political role in the Council's affairs.
- chairs Council meetings
- receives members of the Royal Family and other important guests on official borough engagements
- attends hundreds of events across the borough and across London, supporting community organisations
- entertains people from community organisations at the Mayor's Parlour in the Town Hall during formal and informal events
