The series of Covid-19 lockdowns and safety measures prevented the former Mayors of Macclesfield, Cllr Jackson MBE and Cllr Bennett-Wake, from holding the traditional Thanksgiving and Civic Award Ceremonies in the spring of their mayoral term.

To ensure that all recipients received their award, the former Mayors met them individually to present their certificate and badge and express their gratitude for their services to Macclesfield.
