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 153rd Mayor is Gill Radford, who was appointed in September 2016.
