Malmesbury Town Council held the Inauguration and Robing Ceremony of the Town Mayor on Tuesday 29th May. Councillor Fran Vandelli had been elected as Mayor for the civic year 2018/19 with Councillor Julie Exton elected as her Deputy.

 

In 2002 Fran stumbled on Malmesbury by accident while looking for a sandwich, and fell immediately in love with the town. A week later she brought her family to look at houses, and when her sons (15 and 19 at the time) refused to move anywhere else, the matter was settled.  The family moved to Malmesbury in 2003 and were welcomed into the community the same day - in fact the then Mayor insisted they join him at the pub before they unpacked any boxes!

Fran was elected to the Town Council in 2011, but didn’t stand for re-election in 2013 (having just got a new job with a national care company).  However, Fran couldn’t stay away and re-joined the Town Council in 2015 in the hope of doing something useful and has been trying to make a difference in the community ever since.

Julie put herself forward for nomination for Deputy Mayor as she “feels it’s a big honour to represent the town and its residents, also to put the message across that if I can do it then anyone can, a person with a disability and living in a housing association bungalow.” Julie has been married to fellow Councillor, Phil for 37 years and has three sons, four grandchildren and two dogs. This will be Julie’s sixth year as a member of Malmesbury Town Council and during that time has been elected to all Committees of the Council.

Malmesbury’s new Deputy Mayor says “I hope to help make a difference to the town, in my own small way and to continue to represent all residents.”
