Town Mayor Civic Year 2017 - 2018

Councillor Peter Shaw was re-elected as the Town Mayor for Broadstairs & St. Peter’s at the Statutory Annual Council Meeting and Mayor Making Ceremony at the Pavilion on Monday 15th May 2017.

Cllr. Shaw was born in Essex in 1947 and soon moved to South London. In 1962, his family moved to Birchington when his father's firm relocated to Thanet. He finished his education at Chatham House Grammar School before joining the Royal Air Force in 1964.

He has always been fascinated with motor vehicles and after leaving the RAF in 1974, he started a series of jobs focused on the motor industry. In 1994, he and his wife, Frances, changed career direction and opened a cafe in Broadstairs. They also managed a local club and Cultural Centre.

Since 1999, he has helped run Dickens House Museum and chaired the trust of Crampton Tower Museum.

His other activities have included running Deal Air Cadet unit as CO, chairing The Broadstairs Dickens Fellowship branch, organising The Dickens Festival and acting as vice president to the local Probus Club.

His interests include model aircraft flying, model boat building and classic car restoration.

He has lived in central Broadstairs since 1999 and has a deep affection for the town. He believes it is important to protect the town from those influences that would mar its delightful charm.

"It is a privilege to have been elected Mayor of Broadstairs and St. Peter's and I will do my best to promote and protect the area."
