Mayor of Wareham

Published: 01 September 2020

On appointment Councillor Kirk said, “I have lived in Wareham for the past 50 years and I have greatly enjoyed being part of the local community. In the past, I worked for many years in Alderney hospital as a care worker. I looked after many individuals with dementia. I also worked locally in Purbeck Lodge, where I supported adults with learning disabilities. I have done lots of voluntary work for various charities over the years and enjoyed my time as an advocate for various individuals with learning disabilities, which was very rewarding. My chosen charity for this coming year is Wareham Youth Club, which I have a real passion for. Wareham is a wonderful town and I am extremely honoured to be chosen as Mayor for this year. I will serve the town of Wareham to the best of my ability and I’m so looking forward to fulfilling my role."
