The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Edith Macauley will be collecting a new car sponsored by William Jacks BMW, from their showroom at 6 – 12 Gladstone Road, Wimbledon, on Friday, 26th July, at 3.00 p.m.

The existing Mayor’s car is eight years old. During that time the car has driven the past eight Mayors of Merton to over 5000 engagements both inside and outside the borough. Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral are just a few of the many places the Mayor visits as a representative of the borough during the Mayoral Year.

The car, a black BMW 7 Series, owned by William Jacks BMW, Wimbledon, will be used for Mayoral functions and will form a unique partnership between the Council and a local company.
