Deputy Mayor: Councillor Richard Edgington

The Mayor of Warwick is a role steeped in tradition and ceremony. Since 1664, the Mayor of Warwick has been the First Citizen of Warwick and represents the town, with the insignia of the mace, robes, and chains of office, and connects the present day with history, acting as a symbol of continuity.

The current Mayor who came into office on 30th July 2020 is Councillor Terry Morris. Terry moved to Warwick in 2003 and was elected as a Councillor in 2015. Terry supports driving mental health awareness through all ages and sections of the community and, along with his wife Liz, has actively engaged in a number of projects to reduce social isolation.

Prior to becoming Mayor, Terry was Chair of Warwick Town Council’s Finance & Policy Committee and served on the Community & Culture and Allotments Committees.  He is also a Warwick District Councillor and is passionate about ensuring that the needs of Warwick’s residents are met by the District.

Terry was born in Reading, Berkshire in 1970 and forged a career in IT sales before founding his own company in 2018.  He now splits his time between running his business, serving as a Councillor and supporting a number of local charitable initiatives.

During his Mayoral year, Terry will be raising awareness of, and funding for, charities who provide support around mental wellbeing.  As part of his focus on the diverse needs of today’s society, Terry is keen to strike a balance between the long-standing traditions of Office and representing all members of the Warwick community.

Terry and Liz’s passions include travel and cookery and they love nothing more than combining the two!

As Mayor of Warwick Terry will attend both Historic and contemporary events, meet individuals, organisations and communities, to recognise their contributions to the town and uphold the civic pride in Warwick. The Mayor can be invited to attend events which have a community – inclusive or town wide significance.

The Mayor’s diary is co-ordinated by Sarah Acklam at the Town Council. Please see the Contact The Mayor  page for details of how to get in touch with the Mayor.
