The Mayor

The Mayor for the Civic Year 2017/18

Cllr. Alan HARVEY

I am honoured to have been elected Bingham Town Mayor 2017/18.

I am an Independent member of the Town Council where I have previously been Deputy Mayor and have chaired the Councils’ Environment, Community and Policy & Resources Committees. I represent Bingham on the Bingham and Radcliffe Economic Growth Board. I am also Chair of Saxondale Parish Meeting, and Trustee and immediate past Chair of the Rushcliffe Council for Voluntary Service.

As Mayor, I aim to help drive improvements and future planning for Bingham, utilizing public, voluntary and commercial sector collaborations to the benefit of the locality and to continue the Councils’ improvements in its communication and community engagement.

In my endeavors this year, I will be accompanied by my partner of 22 years, Debbie Lambert. I will also be supported this year by the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Tracey Kerry.

Mayors Charity

This year I will be supporting the Vale First Responders as my charity for 2017/18. The First Responders have been in existence since April 2005 and have attended over 3,000 emergency calls since inception. Made up entirely of volunteers, Vale First Responders are a team of qualified, experienced and active individuals. With few exceptions, the group pay for all of their own equipment.

Vale First Responders have been honoured with The Queens Award for Voluntary Service in Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday Honours list.  Announced by Buckingham Palace on 2nd June 2016, The Queens Award is an MBE for voluntary groups and the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a voluntary group in the UK.

I have chosen this charity as they are an integral part of our local community, providing an entirely voluntary, but necessary service across our area. View their website here:

I hope everyone can join me in supporting this charity.
