Town Mayor 2017-18 Cllr Phil Woodhall
It is with great honour that I have been elected as your Mayor and First Citizen of the Town for the forthcoming year.
I relocated to Bognor Regis from Enfield, North London in 1970 with my parents and siblings, at which time I enrolled at Michael Ayres Junior School before moving up to Bognor Regis Comprehensive School and eventually attending Worthing technical College to train as an electrician. I've had various Saturday jobs around the Town, which I thoroughly enjoyed- even helping Frank the Milkman on the Westmeads Estate where I lived!
I'm very passionate about DIY and when I'm not in the company of my daughter, son and six grandsons, I'm often found working on some sort of project in the home or around the garden.
I first became impassioned to join the Town Council after speaking to a childhood friend of mine regarding my concerns for some of the negative press the Town receives and wanting to find a way I could speak up for Bognor Regis.
In May 2015 I was elected as a Town Councillor for Orchard Ward and the following year, made Deputy Mayor by my fellow Councillors.
I am really looking forward to making a difference and serving you all as your Mayor this year. I hope to meet as many of you as possible!
