In this very important year – both for Bracknell Town and Her Majesty the Queen – Town Mayor Cllr Ash Merry intends to follow Her Majesty’s magnificent lead and focus on ‘neighbourliness’. ‘Nobody can do everything but everybody can do something’, and it is often the little things which can make a difference to others who are facing daily challenges.
Councillor Ash Merry will be raising funds to support initiatives to actively combat isolation and loneliness for residents of Bracknell in her Mayoral year. As a key part of this work, she has chosen to work closely with Fixers in developing projects which will support Bracknell residents in addressing these issues.
If you would like to donate to the Mayor’s Fund please send a cheque payable to ‘Mayor’s Fund’ to Bracknell Town Council, Brooke House, 54 High Street, Bracknell RG12 1LL.
If you would like to invite the Mayor or Deputy Mayor to any local events please contact us either in writing at our Brooke House address, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by completing the Mayor’s contact page.
Please submit your request at least two weeks before your event as the Mayor may not be able to accept late requests. Although these dates are updated regularly, you are advised to check with Brooke House before making any arrangements based on them.

Ash MerryI am very fortunate to have lived in Harmans Water ward for 21 years. I came here as a 30-something-year-old new mother in 1993. My daughter has been brought up here and schooled locally. I served as an Army Officer for 8 years and have always had a strong sense of duty and a willingness to play an active part in my community. I have had a successful career running my own business and working for others in the profit and non-profit sector. I have seen and experienced life from many perspectives, which I believe will enable me to support residents, and ‘do my bit’ to strengthen a very special community.
As a regular media commentator I recognise the importance of providing a balanced voice of opinion to protect the more vulnerable members of our community, and I am a strong supporter of finding best solutions through a common sense approach. I am currently the Constituency Manager for the Bracknell Conservative Association, which gives me the opportunity and pleasure to speak to residents and better understand local issues.
I will focus on ‘neighbourliness’ - keeping our ward safe, green and happy and supporting initiatives to combat isolation and loneliness.
