The Deputy Mayor of Wells has an extremely rare connection with the city council.

Councillor Stewart Cursley’s father, Douglas, served for many years as Town Clerk and was made a Freeman of the City on retirement in 1992.

Councillor Curlsley said, “I feel privileged to be elected by the council to serve the community in our beautiful city of Wells and I look forward to carrying out the role of Deputy Mayor.
Wells is unique and special; a city of enormous strength and community engagement. It is a place that I love and of which I am immensely proud.
I look forward to supporting the Mayor during his remaining ten months of office.
I was brought up in Wells attending Horrington School and the Blue. After taking a first degree in finance at Nottingham I worked as a Chartered Accountant in the City of London.
When my father was Town Clerk we lived in Park Cottage next to the moat of the Bishop’s Palace.
After taking an MBA at the University of Bath I was managing director of several international business.
I enjoy most sporting activities including running half marathons and cycling. I am very proud to have been a member of the Rotary Club of Wells for more than 20 years.
I am very happily married to June. We have four children and three grandchildren.”
