MOST READ

Popular business leader, Tony Davey, is the new elected mayor for Stroud.

Mr Davey is currently chair of the Stroud & District Chamber of Trade & Commerce, a role which he will be stepping back from at their AGM to take up the mantle of mayor. 

On replacing outgoing mayor Stella Parkes, he said: “I am looking forward to an exciting year ahead. No doubt it will be a challenging one in many ways, but we are ready for the task.”

He is also the owner of Party On Up, having semi-retired from a long career in information technology business leadership.

He added: “I’ve loved Stroud since moving here in the 1970s and enjoy working with the businesses within our vibrant town. I have worked closely with the town council and other organisations with my work for the chamber for more than five years, and now hope to bring benefit to our wider town community, as part of the town council.”

Sue Fenton, a Green Party representative, was elected as deputy mayor in an uncontested vote. Sue is a freelance writer and editor who is passionate about Stroud’s stunning scenery and green spaces, as well as its environmental and social progressiveness.
