The Mayor

The Longridge Mayoralty

The Town Mayor is elected each year in May by fellow Councillors and then serves in the role for 12 months.   
The Mayor chairs full Council meetings once a month and also chairs other sub-committees and often represents the Town Council working with other organisations.
The Mayor supports and represents many organisations in the Town and also attends events outside the Town as the representative of Longridge Town. If you would like the Mayor to attend an event or function please contact the Clerk.

The current Town Mayor is Councillor Bryan Dalgleish-Warburton
Bryan is honoured to be Mayor for 2021/22 and proud to be an ambassador for the Town.  Bryan's consort will be his husband Mark. 

 Councillor Bryan Dalgleish-Warburton officially became the Mayor of  Longridge on 12th May 2021 after being handed the chains of office by former Mayor Cllr Steve Ashcroft who had served two years as Mayor due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

 Bryan has lived in Longridge for 15 years and his family for over 35 years. Bryan works as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire and as a psychotherapist in the town.

Although this is the first time that he has had direct involvement in the Town Council, he is keen to foster openness, transparency and maintain healthy and active community involvement at the heart of the town. Bryan wishes to make stronger connections with the youth of the town and has an active interest in equality, diversity, mental health and compassion.


Deputy Mayor - Cllr Nick Stubbs 

Cllr Nick Stubbs formally took office as Deputy Mayor at the Town Council meeting held on Wednesday 12th May 2021.

My name is Nick Stubbs and I have lived in Longridge for 42 years with my family.   I currently work at the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and have done for the last 16 years.   My current role is as Night Support Manager for Facilities Services.   I am an active trade union representative and have been for the last 12 years.   My role as union representative sparked my interest in politics and in particular as a Councillor in my home town.   I joined Longridge Town Council in May 2019 and relish the challenges that I face in serving the residents of Dilworth Ward and the town as a whole.
