Birmingham Lord Mayor 2013-14

Birmingham's new Lord Mayor has taken up office after the Mayor Making ceremony which took place at the Council House on 11 June 2013.

Cllr Mike Leddy, who represents Brandwood Ward, was joined by his wife Lady Mayoress Pauline Leddy.

The 63-year-old Cllr in his role as the city's first citizen (Lord Mayor) said he is ready for the year ahead and was looking forward to his new responsibilities.

The Lord Mayor spoke about one of the charities he would be supporting – Scout and Guide groups.

Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Cllr Mike Leddy, said: “We want to get groups into the most difficult areas of the city, and that's not just inner city spots. It's about what the Scouting and Guiding movement can do for the individual.  I have first-hand experience of this and what can be achieved. They take them, mould them and, eventually, you get a future Lord Mayor.”

At the annual council meeting the Lord Mayor announced his four official charities 2013-14.

The charities supported by the Lord Mayor are:
•    Scouting and Guiding
•    Cystic Fibrosis Trust
•    St Mary's Hospice
•    Brandwood Centre working with Project for Regeneration of Druids Heath (PROD) to support debt advice and management.

Ends.
