The Deputy Mayor attends events when the Mayor is unavailable.
Although there is no official role, the Deputy Mayor should be treated just like the Mayor as they are there on the Mayor’s behalf.
It is tradition at Bracknell Forest for the Deputy Mayor to be elected Mayor.
There is only one occasion when it would be appropriate for the Deputy to attend an event wearing the chain along with the Mayor and this is at the Civic Service.
The Deputy Mayor may be invited to a function in their own right, but usually this only happens if they have a connection to the organisation or the event and has been approved by the Mayor.
It is more likely that they would be invited in their capacity as local Councillor.
