Cllr Kyela Mathieson

It is a great honour to be appointed as Mayor of Bottesford for the coming year, and I am very excited to represent our area. Before looking to the future, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing Mayor, Councillor John Davison for his service and commitment over the last 3 years. John was involved with many projects and was instrumental in their success and not forgetting his unwavering leadership through a global pandemic.

I have lived in Bottesford for over 25 years, raised my family here and still have a child attending the local junior school. Local governance is something that has become a fast and firm passion for me over the last few years. I truly believe in community engagement and transparency and would like to remind residents that council meetings are always open to the public to attend and we are here to listen and represent and support what is matters to our residents.

We have many exciting projects planned for the coming year. Valley View Park is to undergo the second stage of the park renovation and on the back of the last couple of years success I am pleased to confirm that the Beer Festival will be back on 10th August 2024. More information will follow.

This event will be in support of my chosen Mayor’s charity. I have chosen to support 2 charities equally. Firstly, Lindsey Lodge Hospice. A well-known charity that provides vital care for adults with life limiting illnesses. The support they offer to patients and families is invaluable.

Hope House is my second charity. Hope House is a local charity, based on Cambridge Avenue. They support families affected by cancer by providing support groups, counselling, holistic therapies and meal deliveries. We are lucky to have this service on our doorstep and I am proud to give my support wherever possible.

It is my privilege to serve as Town Mayor, if there is anything you require support with, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or any member of Bottesford Town Council.
