Welcome to the Adlington Town Council Website. Contact the Clerk
Adlington is a village and civil parish in Lancashire, England near the West Pennine Moors and the larger town of Chorley. It became a separate parish in 1842 then grew into a town around the textile and coal mining industries until these closed in the 1960s. Adlington has some great features such as the Leeds and Liverpool canal, which runs through the village, and is overlooked by Rivington Pike, part of the West Pennine Moors.
The Mayor of Adlington is Cllr Alison Evans and the Deputy Mayor is Cllr Jim Banks
The Town Council is very sad to announce the death of Cllr Stephen Higgins. Cllr Higgins had been a Town Councillor for four years and was Mayor of Adlington from May 2015 to May 2016. He was involved in many local initiatives including Adlington in Bloom and the Friends of Adlington Library, and raised funds through his Mayor's Charity to provide activities for young people. The Council will miss his enthusiasm and support. It has been agreed by the Council to present a new annual award, the Stephen Higgins Young Citizen Award, to recognise the contribution to the community of a local young person aged 18 or under. The first award will be presented at the Annual Town Meeting in May 2017, and any suggestions for the recipient of the award can be submitted by contacting the Clerk

In partnership with the North West Ambulance Service the Town Council is providing two Automated External Defibrillators in the village. The first of these is now operational and is located close to the crossroads in the centre of Higher Adlington, on the external wall of the public toilet building. The other will be located in Lower Adlington and it is hoped that this will soon be operational. The AEDs are housed in coded cabinets, and the code will be made available when a 999 call is received.
Anderton Parish Council has made a contribution of £250 towards the cost of the AED located on Babylon Lane.
