Each year at the Annual Meeting, the Council appoints a new Mayor and Deputy Mayor from among the 54 Council Members.
The Mayor and Deputy Mayor, and their Mayoresses, attend a variety of civic functions during the year to represent West Lancashire.
The current Mayor is Cllr Neil Furey.
Neil, who represents the Skelmersdale North ward, will serve as Mayor until May 2018.
The Deputy Mayor is Cllr Noel Delaney who represents Scott ward.
One of the other important roles the Mayor has is to raise money for their chosen charities. This year's fundraising efforts will help the 42nd Ormskirk (Skelmersdale St Paul's) Scouts, Evermoor Hub and The Sewing Rooms in Skelmersdale.
