Broughton Town Council

Your Volunteer Councillors

  • Cllr. Louise Price

    Mayor, Councillor

    I have lived in Broughton all of my life. I live with my husband, two teenage children and my pets. Since 1992, I have been a voluntary Leader with the Girl Guides in the town. In the mid 1990s, I was elected to the Council and over the years I have served on many sub-committees and Governing Bodies and I have represented the Council at many events. I am also a member of Broughton WI, involved with the Scout Association locally and I am keen Wombler. In 2018, it was an honour to be elected as Deputy Mayor and then in 2021, to be elected as Mayor. I am passionate about our local community and the lovely Parish we live in and I am so proud of Broughton’s Community spirit.

  • Neil Simpson

    Cllr. Neil Simpson

    Deputy Mayor, Councillor

    I live in Broughton with my wife and three children and I have done so my entire life.My main interests and hobbies revolve around our local cricket and football clubs, local history, and the history of our local cricket and football clubs. My uncle was town clerk from 1992-2000 so I always had a general interest in the town. Both he and my dad lead me into a world of helping to run our local cricket club, a role they were well known locally for and that I have continued with after their passing.I joined the council in 2017 with a general view that we are a town of over 5000 people, and we should offer facilities and opportunities that reflect that status. I also hold a view that voluntary groups are the heartbeat of the community and it’s our responsibility as councillors to use our positions to facilitate them where possible. That will be the mantra I follow throughout my time on the council.

  • Cllr. Paul Senior


    I joined the council in 2011, with the intention having a positive influence within our community. Broughton is a great place to live and work, keeping Broughton great but at the same time looking for ways to improve things is my driving aim.

    In May 2018, it was an honour to be elected Mayor, this has given me new energy and drive to see Broughton improved even further, and I looking forward to working with some of the groups within Broughton to make this happen.

    I have a long family history with Broughton and have lived with my family on the Waters

    Broughton is a great place to live with a fantastic community spirit and as an active local
    resident I hope to be more involved in the future with the local Community groups to ensure
    Broughton continues to be a great place to live for all
