Agenda item


The Chairman to be heard.


The Committee considered the appointment of an Aldermanic Almoner to Christ’s Hospital.


The Town Clerk reported that this was an appointment within the gift of the General Purposes Committee of Aldermen but explained that any appointee put forward would also then need to be ratified by the Council of Christ’s Hospital.


The Chairman reported that Common Councillor Jamal Banda was in nomination for this appointment and was very enthusiastic about taking up the position. He also highlighted that Alderman Goyal would be stepping down as an Aldermanic Almoner in September 2023 and that this would therefore necessitate a further nomination in due course.


An Alderman articulated that this appointment did not necessarily need to be made from within the Court of Aldermen but could be drawn from the wider Court of Common Council.


Resolved :- That Jamal Banda be put forward to the Council of Christ’s Hospital as in appointment for the position of Aldermanic Almoner.
