Daventry's new mayor Malcolm Ogle.

Cllr Ogle’s experience means he will bring a great deal of knowledge and understanding of the responsibilities that come with the role.

Malcolm moved to Daventry from Weedon in 1977 and has served our community as both a group scout leader and controller for Daventry RAYNET (Radio Amateurs' Emergency Network).

Malcolm's working life was spent locally as an electrician and after his retirement is now enjoying a fulfilling role as a volunteer minibus driver for Age UK Northamptonshire and Daventry Area Community Transport (DACT), transporting elderly people to day centres.

Cllr Malcolm Ogle said: "I am honoured to be appointed as the new Mayor of Daventry and thankful for the privileged opportunity. I look forward to supporting Daventry Town Council in its focus on responding to the needs of our community. I am very excited to attend and meet residents at the many wonderful DTC organised events coming up."
