Lasting legacy

by | Jul 24, 2019

Jabba Riaz was Mayor of Worcester from May 2018 – May 2019. Last month he handed over the chain to Allah Ditta and we were in conversation with him to hear more about his official duties and what he hopes his lasting legacy as Mayor will be.

The Mayor is the Civic Head of the Council and as well as chairing meetings of the Full Council and representing the city at ceremonial occasions, the Mayor also welcomes international visitors and attends events organised by local people. Jabba has been a welcome and postive influence on the City, embracing the culture and all that it brings. As (probably) the youngest Mayor of Worcester, his youth and exuberance certainly shone through his time in office and his message of ‘love not hate’ is a shining example of how Jabba has touched all of the communities within Worcester.

For more about Jabba, his mayoral role and what life after being Mayor might bring, please read more in our latest interview in County Lifestyle and Leisure Magazine.
