The Mayor

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/consorts, attend a variety of civic functions during the year to represent West Lancashire.  

The current Mayor is Cllr Mrs Marilyn Westley, who represents Aughton Park ward. She will serve as Mayor until May 2023.      

The Deputy Mayor is Cllr Kate Mitchell who represents Knowsley ward.  

Mayor's charities
