At a meeting held virtually on 13th May 2020, Citizens Advice Broxtowe Trustee, Cllr Janet Patrick was appointed the 44th Mayor of Broxtowe. We are grateful to Janet for her long term support of our service, both as a volunteer, Trustee and fundraiser. Janet, who knows first hand the importance of the work Citizens Advice Broxtowe carry out with some of the Borough’s most vulnerable residents, has kindly chosen to support our charity during her Mayoral year. Each year our local charity supports over 8,000 people with the problems they face. You can find out more about the work of Citizens Advice Broxtowe below.

In a press release Broxtowe Borough Council highlighted some of the other work Janet has carried out in the community:
“Councillor Patrick, a Labour Councillor for Beeston West, is an active figure in the local community. In 2014, with other local supporters, she opened a Beeston Memory Café at Middle Street Resources Centre for people living with dementia and their carers. She also led the campaign to welcome Syrian refugees to Broxtowe under the Government Resettlement Scheme and is a member of the Broxtowe Steering Group for Refugees and Asylum seekers.”
The press release also highlighted that; “alongside being a Councillor and Trustee, she is a Methodist Local Preacher and worships with Methodists and Anglicans.”
Janet will be supported by Councillor Richard MacRae, a Independent Councillor for Stapleford North who will assist Janet as the Borough’s Deputy Mayor. Richard has, for a long time campaigned on behalf of the residents of Stapleford and is himself very active in the community. We look forward to working closely with both Cllr Patrick and Cllr MacRae during the next 12 months.
