The event on Saturday 18 May 2019 was attended by over 200 Civic Dignitaries.

Salisbury City Council is delighted to announce the election of Councillor Mr John Walsh as the 759th The Right Worshipful the Mayor of the City of Salisbury.

The Mayor making ceremony included Mayors from neighbouring towns, cities and overseas, including Salisbury's twin city in Xanten, who witnessed the handover of the Mayoral Chain from Cllr Mr Mike Osment to Cllr Mr John Walsh.

Cllr John Walsh said:

"Like many ex-servicemen and women I settled in Salisbury in 1992, after touring the world with my parents and then with my own family. Salisbury's citizens have made me and my family very welcome and in a small way I hope to repay that kindness by celebrating and promoting the City in every way I can in my Mayoral year."
