UPDATE May 2020
Following the introduction of the Coronavirus Act 2020, this year’s Annual Meeting of the Council will not be taking place, therefore the current Mayor and Deputy Mayor will continue in post until May 2021.
Due to the current situation the mayor is very restricted with the events he can organise to support his charity. If you would like to donate to The Mayor’s Appeal Fund supporting Lindsey Lodge Hospice please click here. Alternatively you can donate by texting LINDSEYLODGE to 70085 to donate £5.00.
Cllr Jonathan Evison became the 24th Mayor of North Lincolnshire following the Annual meeting on Monday 20 May 2019.
Cllr Evison was born and educated in Barton upon Humber, and has lived in the town for most of his life. He worked as a steel worker in Scunthorpe until retiring last year.
Cllr Evison is a founding member of Barton Musical Theatre Company and a long-time member of Barton Town Band.
He has been a member of Barton Town Council for 14 years – and is a former Mayor of Barton – and has represented Barton upon Humber on North Lincolnshire Council for the past eight years.
Cllr Evison is the long-standing chair of the Humberside Police and Crime Panel and is the Chair of Governors at Baysgarth School.
Cllr Evison has chosen Lindsey Lodge Hospice as the charity that he will support through the Mayor’s Appeal Fund.
Cllr Evison said:
“During my time as Mayor of Barton some years ago, I learnt how important the role of Mayor is for recognising the amazing efforts that our community groups and organisations go to. Often these volunteers go without any recognition at all for their hard work and as Mayor I want to be the one who says, ‘you’re doing a really good job’.
“I want to support those clubs, charities, organisations and groups that work so hard in our area. I want to tell people how clever and talented our young people are in North Lincolnshire, and how amazing our towns and villages are. We live in a beautiful part of the world and there’s a lot to be positive about. I want to do all I can to represent and promote North Lincolnshire.”
Cllr Peter Clark is the Deputy Mayor of North Lincolnshire.
