Mayor of Sefton

The Mayor attends many functions during their year in office, both official meetings and social events. On all occasions when the Mayor is present at any function, it is essential that he be accorded the precedence and courtesy due to the office of Mayor, both by custom and by the law of the land.

Cllr Iain Brodie-Browne has been installed as the new Mayor of Sefton for 2016/17.

He was officially appointed as the new Mayor at a special meeting held at Southport Town Hall on May 17 and replaces outgoing Mayor, Stephen Kermode.

Cllr Brodie-Browne is the former Sefton Liberal Democrat leader, a Kew ward councillor from May 1984-87 and has represented Birkdale ward from May 2002 until present. He has also served on Cheshire County Council and Congleton Borough Council.

He is married to Nicola, a schoolteacher, and they have 3 daughters. 

Iain is the founder and CEO of Imagine Independence a mental health charity based in Liverpool which provides services in Merseyside, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cumbria and four London Boroughs. He is a Trustee of the Mental Health Providers Forum a consortium of the leading mental health charities in England and Wales. He previously worked for MIND and Age Concern. 

His interest in Health and Social Care has also led him to serve on a Family Practitioners Committee and Health Authority. He has also served as a Churchwarden in Birkdale. 

Hobbies & Interests

In his spare time, Iain has an allotment in Birkdale and along with daughter Mollie has tasted success in the Ainsdale Show as their pumpkin won the ‘Best in Show’ prize. 

He supports Southport FC and is a regular at Haig Ave. 

Iain enjoys fell walking and has completed several long distance foot paths including The West Highland Way, Offa’s Dyke and Wainwright’s Coast to Coast path. He hopes to do part of the Pembrokeshire Coastal path this year. 

As befits a parent with two daughters who have studied English at University he also enjoys reading and the theatre. 

Cllr Brodie-Browne said: "It is a real honour to be Mayor of Sefton.

"I am very much looking forward to the year ahead representing Sefton on a local, regional and national level as I believe this wonderful borough has so much to offer.

"I would like to thank the outgoing Mayor, Stephen Kermode, for all his efforts in this civic role and hope my term will be as busy and successful as his."

Borough of Sefton

The Borough of Sefton is a metropolitan borough of Merseyside, England and its local authority is Sefton Council. Sefton was formed by the Local Government Act 1972 on 1 April 1974, by the amalgamation of the former county boroughs of Bootle and Southport, and, from the administrative county of Lancashire, the municipal borough of Crosby, the urban districts of Formby and Litherland, and part of the Rural District of West Lancashire. It also formed part of the new county of Merseyside. The borough consists of a coastal strip of land on the Irish Sea, and extends from Bootle in the south, to Southport in the north. In the south-east, it extends inland to Maghull. The district is bounded by Liverpool to the south, Knowsley to the south-east, and West Lancashire to the east.

It is named after the village and parish of Sefton, near Maghull, that had formerly served as the seat of the Molyneux family and the watermill located there served as inspiration for Sefton Council's Crest. When the borough was created in the Local Government Act 1972 a name was sought that would not unduly identify the borough with any of its constituent parts, particularly the former county boroughs of Bootle and Southport. The locality had strong links with both the Earl of Sefton and the Earl of Derby, resident of Knowsley Hall, and given the fact that the immediately adjacent borough was subsequently named Knowsley it seems equally likely that the choice of name was derived from the names of the local nobility. A Sefton Rural District covering some of the villages in the district had existed from 1894 to 1932.
