Invitations to the Mayor

In view of the Mayor’s busy schedule, it is vital that invitations are sent to their office well in advance of the date of the engagement, preferably in writing, with full background details.  Such as what the Mayor will be expected to do, and what other dignitaries have been invited, how long the event is intended to last and who will meet the Mayor on arrival.  The Mayor’s Office produces a form (Request for Attendance of Mayor) which aims to cover the above subjects.  A copy of this form can be obtained from the Mayor’s Office or can be downloaded (see below).
