Town Mayor's Welcome

Yateley Town Mayor 2017/2018 - Councillor Tony Spencer.                                       

It is an honour to serve as your Town Mayor for the 2017/18 year. My wife Barbara and I moved here in 1983, thinking then that it was a half-way house for our family, but we soon fell in love with life here. Barbara was already fond of the area, having been a junior school teacher at Frogmore Juniors from about 1972-77, and continued at St Peter's from around 1985 until she retired in 2009. We are now both retired.

I originally served as a town councillor from 1987-99 and was re-elected in 2015. I have served as a past chairman and deputy chairman and the last two years as Deputy Mayor. In following Cllr Gerry Crisp, who during his four-year term had become synonymous with "Mayor" to many people, I realise he is certainly going to be a hard act to follow.

The new team, including Deputy Mayor Cllr Greg Easterbrook, will be busy during this coming twelve months when the town will see the launch of our long-awaited Youth Suite, the foundations laid of our Neighbourhood Plan and the development of worthwhile projects such as the Daisy Chain Café, and the Yateley Men's Shed, providing plenty of opportunities to support, promote and celebrate life in Yateley.

I am keen to be involved in all aspects of community life in Yateley and would to meet all active and potential groups to increase awareness of like-minded people and promote synergy to improve the feeling of community as a whole.


This year, the charity that the Mayor has chosen to support is The Yelabus Association.

The Mayor is delighted to receive invitations from local organisations to attend functions and fundraising events. If you would like him to come along to your event, please fill in the attached form and email to
