Mayor's Charity


Each May a Mayor is elected to serve the Council. It is the Mayors role to chair council meetings and along with the Clerk and Leader ensure smooth running of the council office and business, also to raise funds for their chosen charities.

Members wish to congratulate Councillor Alan Higgs who became Mayor of Bargoed during the meeting in May. 

The Mayor welcomes invitations to attend events held.  If you know anyone celebrating their Golden or Diamond Wedding Anniversaries and 100th Birthdays please let the council clerk know on 01443 830184 or via email

Since 2004 the Mayors of Bargoed Town Council have raised over £25,000 for charities, many of which are local. It is through the hard work and determination of the Mayor and members that this has been made possible and an enormous thank you to every member of public and business who has helped in raising funds for these wonderful cause.
