1) How do I vote?
Each of the candidates is tasked to fundraise. Either go to an event which they are holding or turn up to The Talbot on the night and put your money in the respective candidates money tin! Remember the elected Mayor is the candidate who raises the most money for The Independent State of Cuckfield.
2) What does the Mayor do?
Well, whilst it’s not an official position of public office, the Mayor of Cuckfield enjoys a level of stardom for the year - not least opening the Cuckoo Fayre and Bonfire, amongst a host of other ‘official’ duties. Our monthly Mayor’s column gives you a pretty good idea.
3) What is on on the Saturday 22nd October?
The Mayor’s Procession is a regular part of the election process in Cuckfield. The elected Mayor will parade at the front of the procession, which starts at Warden Park school and travels all around the village, ending up at The Talbot - where the previous Mayor hands over the ‘keys’ of the village (and usually enjoys a pint!). The procession usually leaves at 2pm and finds its way back to The Talbot at 3pm - where there’s a children’s entertainer to excite the younger members of the crowd!
Who are the candidates?
