Luddenden has its own “Mayor” who raises funds for local good causes. Mayor-making is usually in September, and the ceremony forms part of a busy day of activities including duck races and the annual Straw Bale race up the steep cobbles of Old Lane. The Mayor holds a number of fund-raising events througout the year, details of which will be published here and on Facebook.

The current Mayor is Stephen Parker, who was appointed in September 2021. Stephen’s charity is the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
