The new mayor said that he will raise money for Ribble Valley-based charities Home Start and Cross Roads Care.

He will be assisted during the next 12 months by new deputy mayor, Coun Bridget Hilton.

Coun Ranson said: “I’m delighted to have been elected as mayor by my peers.

“I’m looking forward to getting out there and meeting people and promoting the good work that they do.”
