The Mayor chairs Council meetings assisted by the Deputy Mayor in accordance with Standing Orders.

A Biography - Mayor Mocky Khan

Being Mayor of Didcot is a great honour and one I am very privileged to have this role. I moved to Didcot 7 years ago and I would have never thought I would become a councillor or be Leader, let alone the Mayor. Congratulations to Cllr Denise Macdonald on being elected as Leader of the Council. Being Leader of the Council is challenging role, but I know that Cllr Macdonald will do a great job.

Didcot is changing and I am pleased to be the first Asian to be elected Mayor. This shows the growing diversity in Didcot and that all communities are welcome.

I have chosen two charities that I would like to raise money for during my Mayoral year. The two I have chosen are Play2Give and Coeliac UK.

Play2Give is a superb local charity and Andy Baker, and his team are doing great work which I would like to help and support.

Second is a personal one, my youngest daughter who is 9 years old, has coeliac disease. Coeliac disease suffers must avoid gluten and be gluten free. I want to raise money to support their research into a possible cure and communicate key messages, so people know what to do or where to go for help if they believe they have this condition.

Lisa Khan my partner will be Mayoress and will accompany me to any events that we can attend in person. I shall plan and publicise my Mayoral events for the year and I hope you will be able to join me at these events.
