Biography: Angela Dunford
I am honoured to have been elected Mayor of Wantage and thank my fellow councillors for voting for me.
Firstly I want to pay tribute to the incredible work that my predecessor achieved. Jim Sibbald was mayor of Wantage for the last 4 years and put so much effort and energy into the role. I would like to celebrate his dedication to our town.
I was born on a farm on the Welsh English border and moved around the United Kingdom for education and employment. I have worked in the Healthcare industry with medicines and medical devices for over 25 years. I came to Wantage 17 years ago and love the town. My children were educated here, and I have a lot of dear friends. I was elected as a councillor 4 years ago and have enjoyed working to improve our town.
This is a great opportunity for me to give something back to the town and I am busy already promoting our town and the events taking place here. Do let me know if there is something going on that we can support.
The Mayor’s chosen charity for 2023/2024 will be:
Team Mikayla because of the work that they do with children with cancer, organising events to make people smile during challenging times.
Riding for the Disabled as I love riding and know the huge benefit that spending time with animals can bring.
Letcombe Brook Project as protecting the environment is so important and the Letcombe Brook is a valuable, lifeblood of the town that we need to treasure.
