My name is Dianne Fernee and as your new Mayor I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
I consider myself Wymondham born and bred although my first three years were spent at High Oak (Wicklewood). I went to school at Browick Road and then at 11 moved to Wymondham Secondary Modern School for girls (now Wymondham High School). I spent most of my working life in the NHS in nursing then as a Cardiac Technician. In 2006 I went back into full time education at the UEA and obtained a degree in Medieval History. On completing my degree I work for the CO-OP Pharmacy as a trouble shooter/dispenser and RDM supporter. I am now semi-retired, and have recently taken up the post of Wedding Verger at the Abbey.
I have one son and three grandchildren as well as an extended family that gives me two extra unofficial grandchildren. I am also very lucky to have both my parents still alive. Family are very important to me.
I was in the past leader of 2nd Wymondham Girl Guides, assisted with Beaver’s and also reopened the Girl’s Venture Corp. And I still have a very strong interest in young people’s organisations.
I joined Wymondham Town Council because I am passionate about the Town and its future and it’s that belief in the town that prompted me to get involved.
My vision for Wymondham is to see sustainable growth for the town without compromising the unique historical nature of the Town. To see more facilities for the young people and encourage them to participate in the future of the Town. And finally I should like to see the businesses of Wymondham come together and create some sort of strategy for improving and maintain the town centre.
My pledge to you all is that I will strive to the best of my ability to do the best for Wymondham during my 12 months as Mayor.
The Town Council facilitates the Annual Parish Meeting which this year will be held on 23rd April 2013 in The Fairland Hall commencing at 7.30pm. Please click on the link below to view the Agenda.
Annual Parish Meeting 2013
At the recent Wymondham Town Council meeting Lion President John Wilde asked the Council to accept a Certificate of Appreciation for the Council’s help during 2012.
Lion John said that is usual for the council, who work hard for the community, to receive complaints rather than praise but the Lions would like it placed on record the excellent assistance they have received. Without the council providing storage space, the loan of some equipment and other help neither the Jubilee Celebration nor the Christmas Fayre could have gone ahead.
The Certificate was presented to Mayor Robert Savage at a meeting of the full Council in Fairland Hall. Further information about the Lions can be obtained on email@example.com.
