Lynda Winrow-Baker was appointed as the new town mayor of Westhoughton last night.
An official mayor-making ceremony was held at Westhoughton Town Hall.
Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson said: “It was really nice to see Lynda elected as the town mayor. She is a person who just wants to do her bit for the community.
“I’m really pleased that her family and friends were there for her on her special night.”
Accepting the position, Lynda said: “I am honoured to be given the chance to be mayor of this wonderful town and I just hope I can do as good a job as so many of those who have gone before me.
“I am just so sorry that my late husband Andrew is not here to today but I would like to thank my family for all of their support.”
Her two mayoral charities will be the Dementia Dupport Group and the Rainbow Legacy children’s charity.
