Over 200 local people and civic dignitaries gathered to congratulate Councillor Neil Rix on his election as Town Mayor of Dover at the Annual Mayor Making Meeting of the Town Council in the historic Maison Dieu on 12 May 2016.
Neil was born and bred in Dover, the youngest of 11 brothers and sisters. Neil lives in the Town and brought up his own family there. Neil employs a substantial number of local men and women in the scaffolding and demolition company he founded and built up over 30 years. In his speech to the Meeting he made his top priority to encourage local employers to invest more in the Town and increase involvement in the community life of the Town.
“This is a huge honour and I am determined work my hardest and do my very best for the Town”
