Please note a telephone call is not confirmation that the Mayor will attend an event. A provisional booking will be made in the civic diary until a written invitation has been received (by email or post). An engagement form will be forwarded on to the organisation. On receipt of this information, the booking will be confirmed.

Protocol for a Mayoral Visit

As the First Citizen for Stevenage, the Mayor, Councillor Mrs Margaret Notley should be accorded precedence on all occasions when she is present throughout the Borough.

The only exception to this is when an event is attended by a member of the Royal Family or when Her Majesty is represented on official occasions in the District by the Lord Lieutenant Mr Robert Voss CBE or one of his Deputies (name to be confirmed by the Lord Lieutenant’s office).

Upon arrival at a function, the Mayor should be met and greeted by the organiser and introduced to the assembled company.

The formal announcement of the Mayor is ‘Mayor of Stevenage, Councillor Mrs Margaret Notley'.

Please address the Mayor as ‘Madam Mayor’ and the Mayoress ‘Madam Mayoress’.

The Mayor's correct title is the Mayor of Stevenage. After formal introductions, speakers should refer to the Mayor as ‘Madam Mayor’.

In the event of the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Myla Arceno, attending a function, the same courtesies should be extended to her.

Please address the Deputy Mayor as ‘Madam Deputy Mayor’ and the Deputy Mayor’s Consort 'by name’.
