Your Town Mayor

Councillor Abdul Hafiz (known as Jhual) was appointed as the town’s 211th Mayor at Maldon Town Council’s Annual Meeting on 20th July 2020. Due to the current CoVID-19 restrictions, the meeting had to be held virtually. He will be supported by his wife, Shamema Begum. 


He said: “the role of Town Mayor in Maldon goes back to 1874 and it is indeed an honour for me to be a part of that great heritage. Not only is the Town Mayor the figurehead of the Town Council, but of the town also. I have lived with my family and worked in the town for many years, so I know what a great town Maldon is. It will be my privilege to support the good works of many local people which preserve the economic, cultural, and social well-being of the town. As we all come through these testing times,  Maldon Town Council will work tirelessly during this civic year for the benefit of local residents and businesses and I look forward to seeing people out and about again enjoying everything that the town has to offer.”  

This year, the Town Mayor will be supporting the RNLI (Maldon branch), Action for Family Carers and Achieving Recovery Through Sport.
