Kevin Hurn lives in Wymondham and has done for over 32 years; he was born in the nearby village of Wreningham where he lived until 1986. Kevin is married to wife Sharron, they have been married for 31 years and have two daughters; Natasha and Jemma.

Kevin enjoys being part of the local community and has raised much needed funds for the Alzheimer's Society and Macmillan Cancer Research as well as being Chairman of Wymondham Heritage Society. Kevin has worked to improve the Town of Wymondham and promote the markets as well as backing other projects to raise the profile of the Town, such as the artificial grass pitch at Ketts Park.

Having been a Councillor for four years and a newly elected District Councillor Kevin said "it is a great honour to be elected Mayor of Wymondham and I am looking forward to a busy year, meeting new people and attending events. Wymondham is a wonderful Town in which to live and has so much to offer. I am very keen to support the Town and its residents as much as possible over the coming year"

At a recent meeting of the Town Council, Cllr Hurn outlined his priorities for the coming year. These include working to encourage more retailers into the Town and working in partnership to improve the infrastructure and amenities of our growing Town, whilst retaining its medieval character. He said he would also like to work with other Councillors and local people to produce a neighbourhood plan for Wymondham and continue to support the voluntary sector through the Town Council small grants budget.

"This is an exciting time for Wymondham and hopefully these projects can help to secure the future of this great Town for many years to come. I am also looking forward to seeing the development of the new Town Council offices, where we will finally have a building fit for purpose which provides access for all"
