Councillor Steve Holgate will continue as Mayor for 2021/22
Chorley Council is delighted to announce Councillor Steve Holgate will continue as Mayor for 2021/22.
Cllr Holgate, who represents Coppull, was originally appointed last year only for the role to be limited by COVID-19 restrictions.
He was confirmed in the post for a further 12 months at the council's Annual Meeting on Tuesday evening (18 May).
His daughter, Mrs Emma Adlam, will also continue to serve as his Mayoress.
The Mayor said: "Due to the necessary restrictions over the past year I've been unable to carry out engagements or undertake any fundraising activities.
"I feel truly honoured to have been given the opportunity to have a further year as the Mayor of this wonderful borough, and as lockdown restrictions ease I hope I will be able to get out and about to meet people of all ages and to visit some of the amazing voluntary and community groups who do so much good for the people of Chorley."
Chorley-born Steve was first elected to the council in 1995 and has previously represented the Chorley South East and Chorley South West wards.
As Mayor, his chosen charities and community groups are St Catherine's Hospice, Chorley Inspire Youth Zone and Chorley In Bloom.
Councillor Julia Berry, meanwhile, will continue as Deputy Mayor.
