The Mayor

Each year at the Annual Meeting, the Council appoints a new Mayor and Deputy Mayor from among the 45 Council Members.  

The Mayor and Deputy Mayor attend a variety of civic functions during the year to represent West Lancashire.  

The current Mayor is Cllr Maureen Nixon, who represents Tanhouse & Skelmersdale Town Centre Ward. She will serve as Mayor until May 2024.      

The Deputy Mayor is Cllr Julian Finch who represents Skelmersdale South Ward.                                                  

Mayor's Fundraising

One of the other important roles the Mayor has is to fundraise for their chosen local groups. The Mayor's groups for this year are West Lancs ARK, Skelmersdale Veterans Association, and Skelmersdale Rainbows, Brownies and Guides.
