Elaine Silverwood - Mayor of Fylde
03 May 2007
First Elected
03 May 2007
Kirkham North
28 Medlar Lane
Mobile Telephone No:


Born and raised in Blackpool, I grew up with one foot in The Fylde, as I had family in Kirkham, which included never missing Club Day annually. Having moved to The Fylde as a young adult, my roots are firmly grounded in the area.


A strong work ethic is a family trait and I have undertaken a variety of jobs since 8 years old, including working on local market-gardens and retail. I have been self-employed as an independent local high-street retailer in Kirkham for the past 21 years and still enjoy working, very much hands-on, at my book and coffee-shop. Over the years this has enabled me to bring numerous famous authors and celebrities into the town and borough and given me the opportunity to meet and greet many local people and visitors from further afield.


A Town Councillor since 2004, I am proud to have also been a keen member of Kirkham in Bloom for the last 15 years and always take great pleasure in the visual impact of the flowers and green-space enhancement. We have achieved gold awards on many occasions in recognition of the work, but my main objective is, and has always been, to improve our local environment in every way for the benefit of the residents.


I am honoured to represent the Fylde as Mayor during the 2021/22 municipal year and to help raise much needed funds for my chosen charities –


Kirkham & Wesham Club Day

FCWA – Fylde Coast Women’s Aid

The Linden Centre (Trinity Hospice’s dedicated counselling service)
