Mayor of Swale

The Mayor - "the Head and Chief Governor of the Town" - had for long been recognised as being, in his or her own Borough, second only to Royalty and the Queen's Deputy, the Lord Lieutenant, a status which continues to be recognised in the Borough and District Council by Section 3(4) of the Local Government Act 1972. This high standing at the present time is mainly one of honour and dignity rather than actual legal powers, a distinct contrast to the days before the Municipal Corporation Act 1835, when the Mayor was often virtually and legally a dictator within his own Borough.

Councillor Ingham has lived on the eastern end of the Isle of Sheppey for more than forty years. A registered nurse for thirty years, she spent many years as a Ward Sister at the old Sheppey Hospital.

Lesley is in her tenth year as a borough councillor, having been ward member for Sheppey Central and now serving Sheppey East Ward. Lesley was also Deputy Mayor for the civic year 2015-16.

In her spare time Lesley likes to read, listen to music, go to the theatre and enjoy all things spiritual. Her two granddaughters are the lights of her life and she spends as much time as possible with them.

Lesley’s daughter will be her Mayoress and as her charities for her Mayoral year, Lesley has chosen SSAFA Forces Help, a charity that provides welfare and support for families in the armed forces; and The Perthes Association, a childhood hip disorder
