Meet the Mayor

The Annual Meeting of Crediton Town Council is held in May and this is where Full Council will elect the Mayor & Chairman for the municipal year. Councillor Guy Cochran was elected as Mayor in May 2024.

The Mayor has a central role in representing the council and the people of Crediton. The role is non-policitical, instead the focus is on delivering services to the town whilst promoting and encouraging enthusiasm and community spirit. 


Attending Events

Representing the town council at civic events is also part of the role. If you would like the Mayor to attend, open or support your event, please call us on 01363 773717 or email If the Mayor has a prior engagement, the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Steve Huxtable, will be asked to attend as the council's representative.
