    The Right Worshipful the Mayor of Wells,

    Cllr Stewart Cursley

    648th Mayor of Wells 

    and Mayoress, Mrs June Cursley J.P.


    It is with tremendous pride and honour that I took the oath of office as the 648th Mayor of Wells.

    I went to Horrington School, then the Blue School.

    My parents were Douglas and Elma Cursley and my father for many years was Town Clerk, one of the predecessors of the current Town Clerk Steve Luck. I am certain both of my parents would be very proud of this achievement. I received a humbling message from my nephew in Australia who labelled the achievement as “awesome” and “cool”

    My wife June a JP, is the Mayoress, she also volunteered for 15 years at the Citizens Advice Bureau in Wells.  We have four children and three grandchildren.  We are looking forward to meeting as many residents and organisations as possible this year.           

    1974, was the year of the last major local government reorganisation.  I am very keen that the assets transferred away from Wells in 1974 are rightly returned to Wells. To begin, the bishop’s barn and the adjoining playground and recreation ground should be returning to the control of Wells City Council in late July.

    Each year, the Mayor chooses a charity.  This year I have chosen Promiseworks.  Please follow this link for more information: Promiseworks
