Mayor 2022/23 – Cllr Dave Jasper
I am delighted to have been elected as Mayor of Sedgefield. I consider it to be a very great honour and privilege to have been asked to represent our wonderful village. My links with the area go back to 1976 when I was appointed as Music teacher at Sedgefield Primary, a role which I was very happy in during my 8 years there. It was during that time that I became MD for the Lyric Singers, another role which I thoroughly enjoyed. I moved into Sedgefield in 1988 and following my marriage to Julia we welcomed our children Tim and Ciaran who have both grown up in the village. In 2003 I joined the Sedgefield Players and can still be seen regularly tripping the boards in a wide array of productions playing villainous characters in various pantomimes from Mother Goose to Jack and the Beanstalk, either demanding rent or higher taxes! I love spending time with such a talented group of people ranging through all age groups. I still sing with the Lyrics and last year I was made an honorary life member. I am now three times the age I was when I first worked in Sedgefield and having spent most of my adult life here I feel fully accepted as a local Sedgefield(ite). I just need to persuade the Players to put on a production of Dick Whittington as I have a black cat! I promise to carry out the civic duties of Mayor of Sedgefield to the best of my ability and to follow the wonderful examples set by past Mayors of Sedgefield. My wife and I look forward to meeting residents and visitors to Sedgefield, to represent our village and to raise funds for local causes close to our hearts. My headline charity will be Cancer Research which I have chosen in memory of my much loved parents. My Mum died of Bowel Cancer, a disease which affects 1 in 25 people, and my Dad died of Prostate Cancer, a disease which affects 1 in 9 people. Details about my fund raising events will be posted on this page and through other Town Council media such as Twitter and Sedgefield Extra
